One person died in an accident on the Lougheed Highway in Mission on Wednesday evening.
Emergency crews responded just after 7 p.m. to the crash just west of Shook Street in the Hatzic area.
Crews arrived to find that a head-on collision had occurred between a passenger car and a semi-truck and trailer.
Both vehicles had gone off to either side of the road with debris strewn all over the highway.
A thermal imaging camera and RCMP K9 unit were utilized at the scene.
Police are still investigating the cause of the accident but confirmed that a passenger in the car died.
The highway was closed for several hours while the RCMP’s Integrated Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Service investigated the crash.
