COQUITLAM RCMP are asking for the public’s help to identify the driver of a white Nissan Murano who could be an important witness to a fatal crash involving a motorcycle.

The crash happened just after 5 p.m. on August 1 at the intersection of Como Lake Avenue and Porter Street, Coquitlam. A 54-year-old motorcyclist died when he collided with a grey SUV that was turning left from eastbound Como Lake Avenue to northbound on Porter Street.

– A white body with black, five-spoke wheels,
– A sunroof,
– After-market running boards,
– A sticker or decal in the passenger-side rear window.
Investigators have also determined that the Murano is a 2003 to 2007 model.

Anybody who was in the Nissan Murano, or anyone who saw the collision and has not yet spoken to police, is asked to call a dedicated Coquitlam RCMP tip line that is set up for this file: 604-552-7370.
