Richmond RCMP is seeking witnesses to a fatal crash that happened July 11.

The collision between a semi-truck and black Chevrolet Corvette took place around 6:30 a.m. in the 7200 block of Nelson Road, according to an RCMP release.

The Corvette was travelling southbound on Nelson Road from Westminster Highway when it collided with the truck, resulting in catastrophic damage to the car. The male driver of the Corvette, who was the sole occupant in the vehicle, sustained fatal injuries as a result of the collision. 

The driver of the semi-truck remained on scene and has been cooperative with police. Speed is believed to be a factor in this collision.

The Richmond RCMP criminal collision investigation team attended and processed the scene along with the Lower Mainland integrated collision analyst and reconstructionist services.

Richmond RCMP is seeking witnesses and asking vehicle owners with dash-cams, that may have been travelling in the area around the time of the collision, to review their footage. Richmond RCMP is also asking local business owners to review their video surveillance for possible footage.

Anyone with information regarding this investigation are asked to contact the Richmond RCMP at 604-278-1212 and quote file number 2020-18468.
