Burnaby RCMP have issued a plea for witnesses as they continue to investigate a fatal pedestrian collision that took place on Dec. 13 at 7 p.m.
A 22-year-old female pedestrian was struck by a transit bus at the intersection of 16th Avenue and 6th Street in Burnaby and was pronounced deceased at the scene.
“Today, police are appealing for additional witnesses, specifically those who were on the 106 bus to Edmonds Station to come forward and speak with us,” said a news release. “This was not the bus that struck the pedestrian. This bus departed from New Westminster Station Bay 7 roughly 15 minutes prior to the collision and some passengers departed the scene before police had an opportunity to speak with them.”
Police ask that if you were on this bus or if you witnessed this collision and have yet to speak with police to contact Burnaby RCMP at 604-646-9999. If you wish to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or text "BCTIP" to 274637 with information.
