Police are looking for witnesses or dashcam video that might have captured a Burnaby crash that left a 77-year-old pedestrian with "serious, life-altering injuries” Sunday.

Officers came upon the scene just after 5 p.m., according to Burnaby RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Mike Kalanj.

He said witnesses have told police the man was in a crosswalk on Grange Street at Barker Avenue when he was hit by a car travelling westbound on Grange.

The intersection is equipped with traffic lights, but it’s unclear whether they had been activated at the time of the crash, according to Kalanj.

He said the man is in stable condition in hospital, but the crash left him with “serious, life-altering injuries.”

Police are now asking anyone who witnessed the collision or might have dashcam video of it to contact Burnaby RCMP at 604-646-9999.
