UPDATE: ICARS investigating fatal single-vehicle collision in Pitt Meadows

Crash occurred on Friday afternoon on Old Dewdney Trunk Road

The Integrated Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Service (ICARS) is currently investigating a single-vehicle collision in Pitt Meadows that has led to an individual being hospitalized, according to the Ridge Meadows RCMP.

On Friday afternoon, shortly after 1 p.m., a vehicle collision occurred at a private residence in the 18200-block of Old Dewdney Trunk Road.

The incident involved only one vehicle, and met the criteria to call in ICARS, which happens when severe or fatal injuries occur, explained the Ridge Meadows watch commander.

The officer revealed that an individual was transported to hospital, but would not comment any further until family members could be properly notified.

The SUV involved in the incident caused some damage to a house and porch, with the vehicle reportedly striking the individual while reversing.

According to a witness, the individual suffered critical injuries and later died as a result despite initial treatment by Emergency Health Services.

More information will be provided as it becomes available.
