A man crashed into a house in west Maple Ridge early Monday morning and died.
The 62-year-old went off Dewdney Trunk Road, driving across a garden and through trees and brush in one yard, over a garden bed and wooden divider in another yard, and then crashed into a house on a third property in the 21100 block.
Damages to all three properties appeared minimal.
The man, who was alone in the truck, was pronounced dead when he arrived at the hospital.
"Our investigation into the crash is in the beginning stages," said Sgt. Dale Somerville with the Ridge Meadows RCMP traffic unit. "Police are focusing on the probable cause or causes of the crash. We are asking for anyone who observed a blue 1995 Dodge pickup driving on Dewdney Trunk Road just before 6 a.m. this morning to call police."
Anyone with information is asked to call Ridge Meadows RCMP at 604-463-6251.
