Burnaby RCMP are investigating three different vehicle-related incidents that have left three people dead within two days’ time.
The third person, a pedestrian, was fatally struck in a multi-vehicle collision at 8:50 p.m. on Friday along Lougheed Highway between Madison Avenue and Gilmore Avenue.
They were pronounced dead at the scene while two others were taken to hospital.
Investigators believe that speed was a contributing factor.
Mounties were at the scene of a fatal crash just hours before around 2:30 p.m., this time near Metrotown mall. One person died, police have confirmed. As many as eight vehicles were involved and investigators are working to determine the crash.
On Thursday afternoon, a 75-year-old man was killed in a hit-and-run incident as he was walking across a street near Marine Way and Boundary Road. Police are now looking for the driver of a semi-truck pulling a dark-red shipping container.
