Two teenagers from Richmond are dead after a collision on Number 4 Road, south of Steveston Highway.
RCMP Ins. Al Raimey says it happened at 3 a.m.
"Police and fire rescue attended and found the four-door car that had failed to negotiate a left-hand turn and impacted a large tree on the passenger's side. The driver was taken to hospital, accompanied by police, for treatment of minor injuries. Very tragically, two young men from Richmond were killed in the impact, aged 16 and 19 years."
Names of the victims have not been released.
Driver inexperience, speed and possibly alcohol contributed to the crash.
Neighbour Graeme Price says the tragedy could have been prevented.
Price says he has lobbied the city of Richmond for special signs in the area to warn drivers to slow down.
"I really think that with the number of accidents we've had on these corners, we really could do with a little bit more signage."
Price adds the city considered speed bumps along number four road, but residents shot down the idea.
