BC driver dies from injuries after large rock crashed through windshield on highway

The driver injured when a rock crashed through her vehicle's windshield last week on a Metro Vancouver highway has died.

BC Highway Patrol Cpl. Melissa Jongema confirmed that the vehicle's 34-year-old female driver has died of her injuries after the crash on June 6.

Police said a day after the crash on Hwy 1 that a "large rock" had been recovered from the scene.

Jongema said police are still investigating where the rock may have come from and no additional details have been released.

The crash happened in Burnaby, near the Willingdon exit on the highway, and police said previously that the driver was taken to hospital in critical condition.

Police are still seeking witnesses and possible dashcam footage of the crash to help with the investigation.
