A taxi driver has died following a single car crash on Barnet Highway Thursday night.

The crash happened at around 11:30 pm on the boundary between Burnaby and Port Moody heading westbound, the Burnaby RCMP tells Daily Hive. It’s believed the driver hit a pole or a tree and was pronounced dead at the scene.

The accident resulted in the closure of the highway westbound until 8 am on Friday.

Speed and weather are both being considered as factors in the crash.

The Burnaby RCMP says they’re looking for witnesses to this crash. If you have information, call them at 604-294-7922.
