Suspicious, deadly crash

A single-vehicle crash in Burnaby Friday night is being described as "suspicious" by police, and now the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team is involved. 

The crash happened on Barnet Highway near Texaco Drive around 10 p.m. Friday. A section of the road from Reed Point way to Ridge Drive remains closed Saturday afternoon. 

An SUV hit a lamp post and was found with an unresponsive man inside. First responders pulled him out onto a stretcher, and CTV news crews discovered a second victim, an unconscious woman, nearby in a ditch. 

The woman was ejected from the vehicle due to the impact, and later died from her injuries, according to Burnaby RCMP. The man's condition is unknown. 

RCMP say they believe the pair knew each other and there is no risk to public safety. 

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call IHIT at 1-877-551-IHIT or by email at [email protected]
