A second person has died on a Burnaby road in the past four days after an early-morning crash claimed the life of a driver on Boundary Road
The crash happened on Boundary Road, north of Marine Way at 6 a.m. Saturday morning.
The 40-year-old male driver of a pickup truck heading southbound lost control and rolled the vehicle across into the northbound lanes, colliding with a car before landing on its roof.
The driver of the pickup died at the scene. The other driver was transported to hospital. Vancouver police are now investigating, as it was on the border of the two communities.
Boundary is now closed in both directions with no ETA on when it will reopen. Anyone who witnessed this incident, or has video, is asked to call VPD’s Collision Investigation Unit at 604-717-3012.
An 88-year-old woman died after being struck by a driver in Burnaby on Wednesday afternoon.
Burnaby RCMP said that the pedestrian died after she was hit by a driver driving an SUV at the intersection of Willingdon and Beresford.
Police are asking that anyone who may have witnessed the pedestrian collision or potentially have dash cam video in the area when the collision took place to contact Burnaby RCMP at 604-646-9999 or if you wish to remain anonymous contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
This past summer, the City of Burnaby made numerous changes to this intersection following years of complaints from area residents. The intersection involved drivers on Beresford trying to inch across Willingdon, so the city put up barriers to stop east-west traffic. Drivers heading north on Willingdon are able to turn left.
