  • Death of driver at drive-thru:VPD

Vancouver Police are investigating the death of a driver while at the drive-thru of a fast food restaurant early this morning.</p>

Officers were called by Vancouver Fire Rescue Services to the MacDonald&rsquo;s on Main and Terminal streets at around 5:30 a.m. to assist with a single-car collision.  Surveillance footage shows the driver dropping an object out of his vehicle while paying for items. When he went to pick up the item, the vehicle rolled forward, colliding into a structural piece of the restaurant. The driver was unable to free himself from the vehicle as he was pinned between the vehicle door and frame.

Efforts were made by first responders to revive the man, but tragically, he died on scene,&rdquo; says Constable Tania Visintin, VPD. This is an absolutely heartbreaking scenario. Our deepest condolences go out to the family and friends of this man.

The VPD Collision Investigation Unit and BC Coroner Services are now investigating.

Anyone with dash-cam footage who was driving in the area at the time of the incident, or anyone who may have witnessed the incident, is asked to call investigators at 604-717-3012.
