Richmond RCMP investigating commercial vehicle collision into overpass
2023-02-10 17:47 PST
File # 2023-4381
Shortly after 7 a.m. on Friday February 10, 2023, frontline Richmond RCMP responded to Knight Street southbound, after multiple reports of a commercial vehicle collision. It was determined that a commercial vehicle was towing a dump trailer in the raised (vertical) position and it failed to clear the overpass. The commercial vehicle was located some distance away as it was severed from the trailer unit, still lodged underneath the overpass.
No one was reportedly injured. Due to the time of the morning in which this collision occurred, many travelers were affected during the rush hour commute.
The driver of the commercial vehicle was uncooperative with investigators.
The Richmond Road Safety Unit (RSU) has assumed conduct of this investigation and is working alongside our partners from the Commercial Vehicle Safety Enforcement branch of the British Columbia Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure.
Engineering and structural assessments are being conducted on the Knight Street bridge deck, Cambie Road overpass, and any near by areas affected.
Richmond RCMP is asking to public for any information or dashcam footage on this incident to please contact us at 604-278-1212 and quote file #2023-4381.
