Richmond RCMP has announced the city’s first pedestrian fatality of 2020.
Mounties say the collision happened near Cooney Road and Ackroyd Road on Tuesday, Jan. 14, just before 10:30 a.m.
Police say a 72-year-old Richmond man was hit by a light-coloured pickup truck and was rushed to hospital with life-threatening injuries, where he later died.
The driver of the pickup truck stayed at the scene and is cooperating with the investigation, police said.
Investigators are still looking for witnesses and are asking anyone with dashcam video shot in the area at the time of the crash to submit it.
Word of the fatality emerged the same day that a pedestrian was killed in a collision in Surrey, and Vancouver police announced a death in an unrelated to a collision that happened Sunday.
