Police are looking for dashcam video that might shed more light on a head-on collision in Burnaby that sent a man and woman in their 50s to hospital with life-threatening injuries Wednesday afternoon.

Police came upon the scene on Canada Way at Hazelmere Street just after 3 p.m., according to a Burnaby RCMP news release.

A sedan headed westbound down Canada Way had collided head on with a pickup truck, according to spokesperson Cpl. Mike Kalanj.

The driver of the sedan, a woman in her 50s, and one of her passengers, a man in his 50s, were rushed to hospital with serious, life-threatening injuries, Kalanj said.

Another passenger was taken to hospital with serious but not life-threatening injuries, and the driver of the pickup was uninjured, according to police.

Burnaby RCMP’s criminal collision investigation team is investigating the crash and looking for witnesses.

“We’re looking for dashcam video of the incident, but we would also like to speak to anyone that saw the collision,” Kalanj said. “If you witnessed the collision, then drove or walked away, we would like to speak to you.”
