The vehicles involved were a newer model dark gray Dodge Ram and a white Ford cube van towing an EZ load utility trailer. The driver of the cube van was killed in the collision, while the two occupants of the pick-up truck were taken to hospital.

Investigators are asking for any witnesses, or those who may have dash cam video, to come forward. Specifically, police are looking for witnesses to what may have occurred right before the crash in the time frame of 10:45 to 11:15 a.m.

“Anyone who observed the pre-collision driving of either vehicle, or who witnessed the collision or elements of it is asked to contact police,” DPD public affairs manager Cris Leykauf said in a press release. “This would include anyone who may have dash cam , or who stopped at the scene to assist, and has not yet spoken with police.”

Witnesses are asked to call 604-946-4411.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
