The BC Coroners Service is confirming it is investigating a death resulting from what police have called a hit-and-run at a Squamish bus stop.

On Sept. 21, spokesperson Ryan Panton said no other details are available at the moment since the investigation remains open.

While the deceased has not been officially identified, a memorial has recently appeared at the bus stop.

Previously, police reported that a truck drove over the sidewalk on Cleveland Avenue and Pemberton Avenue on Sept. 3 at around 11:25 p.m.

In the process, the vehicle crashed into two women who were waiting at a bus stop. Both suffered serious injuries and were hospitalized.

The truck also crashed through a chain link fence, damaged a bus stop sign and flipped over.

Officers say a large number of nearby people saw the incident. Bystanders came together to lift the truck off the injured women.

Police report the driver, a male, ran away from the scene, but was later arrested.
