Motorcyclist dead following hit-and-run in southern BC

A person is dead and police are looking for answers following a fatal hit and run in Burnaby on Saturday night.

According to RCMP, at 9:45 pm, officers responded to reports of a hit-and-run collision involving a vehicle and a motorcycle at Canada Way and Imperial Street.

The motorcyclist was not dead at the scene, though they later died in hospital.

“This is a very tragic incident that has not only taken a life, but will affect countless individuals,” said Cpl Mike Kalanj. “If you can assist us in our investigation, please come forward and contact the Burnaby RCMP.”
