VPD investigates fatal collision

Vancouver Police are investigating a serious, two-vehicle collision on Boundary Road at Marine Drive that claimed the life of a 40-year-old man today.

Just after 6 a.m., one vehicle was driving south on Boundary Road when it went airborne and collided with another vehicle that was driving north. Vancouver Police, Vancouver Fire Rescue Services, Burnaby Fire Department, and BC Ambulance responded.

One man was pronounced deceased at the scene. The driver of the other vehicle was taken to hospital for non life-threatening injuries.

Speed was likely a factor.

This is Vancouver’s 13th motor vehicle fatality of 2019.
