COQUITLAM, B.C. — Police say a 13-year-old girl was the pedestrian who died after a collision on Monday at an intersection in Coquitlam, B.C.
The RCMP say the crash happened between a Dodge Charger travelling southbound on Mariner Way and intending to turn left onto Riverview Crescent and a BMW travelling northbound.
The Mounties say the impact of the collision caused the BMW to spin onto the raised traffic island where five children were standing: three girls aged 17, 13 and 10, and two boys aged 11 and 6.
Two of the children — the 13-year-old-girl and the six-year-old-boy — were taken to hospital with serious injuries.
Soon after arriving at the hospital, police say the girl succumbed to her injuries.
The BC Coroners Service is also investigating.
