File # 2023-19787

Burnaby RCMP is seeking dash cam footage and additional witnesses after a single vehicle collision involving a pickup truck at a construction site.

On June 12, at approximately 9:10 a.m., Burnaby RCMP frontline officers were called to a construction site on Beta Avenue near Dawson Street for reports of a single vehicle collision involving a southbound pickup truck.

Witnesses indicated a white Toyota Tacoma had crashed into a concrete block, which caused the block to strike another vehicle legally parked at the location. The pick-up truck then reversed and collided with a wooden pallet holding construction materials. The 40-year-old male driver was unconscious when first responders arrived. He was transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Nobody else was hurt.

Burnaby RCMP's Traffic Services has assumed conduct of the investigation.

Front of a white Toyota Tacoma with frond end damage and driver’s door open. The word TOYOTA is written in white on the black front grill of the truck. A white Toyota Tacoma with front end damage is in the distance on the left with two police officers standing beside it. There is a damaged concrete block on its side with the bumper of the Tacoma on it.

Investigators are currently looking into all factors of the collision, including the possibility of driver impairment, said Corporal Mike Kalanj with Burnaby RCMP. It is fortunate nobody else was injured in this incident.

Any witnesses who either saw the crash or have dashcam video of the incident or the truck in the area before the collision are asked to call Burnaby RCMP at 604-646-9999. Please quote file number 23-19787.
