One driver died but a passenger in that car survived, along with the driver of the other car.

The crash occurred just hours after a collision on Vancouver's west side that left a 40-year-old motorcyclist with life-threatening injuries.

Police say a transport truck turned left in front of the oncoming bike.

Investigators say speed appears to have been a factor, but they are asking for witnesses to come forward.
