The Richmond RCMP is investigating two separate fatal collisions that occurred within a 24-hour period and is asking any witnesses or persons with dashcam footage to report.

Around. On Tuesday, police said they were called to a crash near the intersection of No.4 Road and Westminster Highway that involved a blue Kenworth truck pulling live fish and a white BMW.

One person died in the collision, according to a written statement from the RCMP, while three others are in hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Police said a man was thrown out of his vehicle and that live fish had been spilled all over the area after the collision.

Police are asking motorists to plan an alternative route and avoid the intersection between No.4 Road and Westminster Highway as it is likely to be closed most of Tuesday.
