Lougheed Highway closed after deadly morning crash

One person is dead and three others injured following a three-vehicle rush-hour crash.

The RCMP respond to an accident on the Lougheed Highway near the 255th block that left one person dead on Thursday morning.

One person is dead and three others injured following a three-vehicle rush-hour crash on a rainy Lougheed Highway Thursday morning.

Ridge Meadows RCMP say two cars and a pickup truck collided in the 25500-block of Lougheed Hwy. at about 9 a.m.

One person has been pronounced dead at the scene, while three others were taken to hospital with varying degrees of injuries.

“The initial investigation has revealed the wet weather and roads, along with speed are contributors to this crash,” said Cpl. Alanna Dunlop.

“The Lougheed Highway, which is a major thoroughfare, has been closed both ways since the crash, and will remain closed for some time.”

The name of the victim won’t be released until family is notified.

It is the second traffic fatality in Maple Ridge in the past week.
