Burnaby RCMP believe the driver of a pickup was impaired when he struck and killed a pedestrian early Saturday morning on Lougheed Highway.

On Sept. 17 at about 4:40 a.m., a 25-year-old man was walking along Lougheed Highway on the inside shoulder, beside the concrete median of the westbound lanes when he was struck near Phillips Avenue by a red 1997 Ford F150 pickup truck.

Police are recommending charges of impaired driving against the driver.

Anyone who may have seen the victim walking on the road, the red truck travelling on the road or the collision itself is asked to call Const. Collins at 604-294-7922.
