A cyclist has died over the weekend after a vehicle hit-and-run in Burnaby.
The incident took place on Saturday, June 29 at approximately 1:30 pm.
The Burnaby RCMP received a call from BC Emergency Health Services, reporting a collision between a cyclist and a motor vehicle around the 1500-block of Gaglardi way.
Burnaby RCMP says in an email that the cyclist, who was 53-years-old, has passed away due to their injuries.
The alleged vehicle, a black Jeep Cherokee SUV, fled the scene of the collision.
They were found a short time later on University High Street and Tower Road where the driver was arrested.
