One dead after collision on Cambie Street overnight

VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) – Vancouver Police are investigating a fatal collision at Cambie Street and West 33rd Avenue after a car hit a light pole late last night.

Around 12:30 a.m., a car was traveling south on Cambie Street from West 33rd Avenue when it veered off the road and hit a light pole.

Tragically, a 26-year-old woman that had been sitting in the front passenger seat was pronounced dead at the scene.

The name of the deceased is not being released as the family has not yet been notified.

The 26-year-old driver of the car was taken to hospital with minor injuries and is cooperating with police. Police believe that speed was a factor in the crash.

Anyone that witnessed the collision and has not spoken with police is asked to call the VPD Collision Investigation Unit at (604) 717-3012.

tragic and preventable

This is very tragic but no amount of laws or fines are going to stop these insane drivers. Young people feel invincible and will push the envelope when it comes to taking risks such as speeding because “it doesn’t happen to them”. There are warnings, peer presentations at school from people who have experienced this tragedy, and endless reports saying speed kills but each week we witness another accident that kills or seriously injures another young person. The reality is this will continue to happen (twice last night) and no matter how much we promote safe drinving we will be reading about this again soon.
