Ridge Meadows RCMP say four vehicles were involved in a crash on Golden Ears Way at 203 Street around 7:30 p.m.

Police say it appears speed may have been a factor in the collision.

Witnesses say a Toyota Tacoma truck was travelling eastbound when it crossed the centre line, colliding with another car. Two other cars were also involved in the crash.

The driver, a 38-year-old Pitt Meadows man, and his dog, died at the scene.
