RIDGE Meadows RCMP announced on Wednesday they are investigating a four-vehicle collision that resulted in the death of a man and his dog.
On Tuesday (June 5) at around 7:30 p.m., police received multiple calls about an accident involving four cars on Golden Ears Way at 203rd Street. Ridge Meadows RCMP first responders, along with the Integrated Collison Analyses Reconstruction Service (ICARS), attended the scene.
Early indications are that speed may have been a contributing factor in the accident. Witnesses report a Toyota Tacoma truck was travelling eastbound at a high rate of speed when it crossed the center line colliding with another car. The driver of the Tacoma, a 38-year-old Pitt Meadows man, and his dog, died at scene as a result of injuries.
The drivers of two other vehicles were transported to hospital, one with serious injuries. The driver of a fourth vehicle suffered minor injuries which did not require hospitalization.
Roads were closed for approximately eight hours and reopened at 3:30 a.m. on Wednesday. The investigation is in the early stages, police said.
