Coquitlam RCMP are looking for witnesses to come forward after a crash on Sunday claimed the life of a man from Pitt Meadows.

A red Subaru Outback collided with a grey Volkswagen Passat that subsequently struck a white Chevrolet Colorado.

The driver of the Subaru and one of his passengers were taken to hospital with what appeared to be minor injuries, said the Coquitlam RCMP in a press release.

However, just after midnight the following day, the 82-year-old passenger died from his injuries.

The Coquitlam RCMP Criminal Collision Investigation Team has now taken over the investigation and are appealing to anyone else who saw the collision, or the immediate moments beforehand, to contact the Coquitlam RCMP non-emergency number at 604-945-1550 and ask for the Collision Team (file 2020-10802).
