  • Burnaby RCMP searching for semi-truck driver after fatal hit and run

RCMP say they are investigating a hit and run that killed a 75-year-old male pedestrian in Burnaby, B.C.

Mounties say in a news release officers were called after 11 a.m. Thursday to the area of Marine Way and Boundary Road.

The release says the pedestrian was declared dead at the scene and from witness accounts, it appears he was not in a marked crosswalk when he was struck.

The vehicle of interest in the crash has not been located and is described as a semi-truck that was pulling a dark red shipping container.

Mounties are asking anyone with information about the vehicle or dashcam footage from the area to contact police immediately.
