Vancouver – Vancouver Police are investigating a collision Monday that claimed the life of a 64-year-old Charanjit Parhar.

The collision happened around 8:30 a.m. September 27 near Cambie and Cordova streets. A man was pinned between two transit vehicles as he was dealing with a mechanical issue on his bus. The victim was taken to hospital by paramedics for life-threatening injures where he later died.

“The circumstances of this fatality are heartbreaking,” says Constable Tania Visintin. “VPD’s Collision Investigation Unit is working closely with Coast Mountain Bus Company and Worksafe BC to determine the cause of this collision.”

There will be a moment of silence Wednesday at 3 p.m., and all buses and Seabuses “will stop for a moment of reflection.”
