A serious two vehicle collision in the Marpole area killed a man in his 20s on Saturday

Police say speed was a factor, but they are still investigating

VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) –┬áInvestigators are still trying to figure out what caused a deadly collision in South Vancouver on Saturday night.

A serious two vehicle crash in the Marpole area killed a man in his 20s just after 11 p.m. on the night of Feb. 16 at Cambie Street and West 57th Avenue.

Vancouver Police Constable Jason Doucette says VPD are still investigating.

“We haven’t ruled anything out. Speed obviously appears to be some sort of factor in this. You look at the debris field and it went on for a block and a half or two blocks,” he says.

A vehicle with three people was travelling south on Cambie when it collided with a vehicle with two people at West 57th Avenue, before crashing into a utility pole.

The collision killed a 26-year-old man, behind the wheel of a white 4-door Hyundai Elantra.

The VPD is appealing for more witnesses to come forward, including the people inside an orange VW Beetle that was in the area.

“It’s important now that we find out exactly what happened,” Constable Doucette says.
