  • Vancouver Police seeks witnesses to elderly pedestrian killed in Downtown Eastside

Vancouver Police are investigating the year’s fifth pedestrian fatality, which occurred this morning in the Downtown Eastside.

“VPD investigators have collected evidence and are working to understand all of the circumstances that led to this tragic collision,” says Sergeant Steve Addison, VPD. “We’d like anyone who saw what happened, or anyone who was passing through the area with dash-cam video, to contact our detectives.”

A 67-year-old man was struck and killed by a semi-truck that was travelling down East Cordova Street near Princess Avenue around 9:45 a.m. He was pronounced dead at the collision scene a short time later.

The driver of the semi-truck remained at the scene, and neither speed nor alcohol appear to be factors.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Vancouver Police Collision Investigation Unit at 604-717-3012.
