MISSION, B.C. — One person is dead and three others are in hospital following a high-speed crash in Mission, B.C.

Mission RCMP Cpl. Patrick Mehain says a 1991 Nissan Sentra was driving down Burma Road early Saturday morning when the driver failed to navigate a turn and crashed into a tree.

A female passenger in the back seat of the car was pronounced dead at the scene.

One male was airlifted to hospital in serious condition and two males were taken to hospital by ambulance with non life-threatening injuries.

Mehain says speed and road conditions are believed to be the cause of the crash.

Burma Road is a gravel road full of twists and turns, and it was pouring rain at the time of the crash.
