A man who pleaded guilty to a hit-and-run car accident that killed a 25-year-old woman in Vancouver in March has begun his sentencing process. British Columbia residents may remember coverage of the car accident that has since been attributed to reckless driving. The proceedings were adjourned initially because nearly 50 of the woman’s friends and family made appearances to view the sentencing.
The accident report from March 9 states that around 11:30 p.m. the woman’s vehicle was T-boned by another car traveling at a high rate of speed. The driver of that vehicle, a 26-year-old man with a long history of criminal activity, fled the scene on foot along with his passenger. He was arrested several days later at a motel in Creston and charged with dangerous driving causing death and leaving the scene of a fatal accident.
Two people have been tragically killed in a head-on car crash in Surrey, according to local sources. British Columbia authorities responded to the fatal car accident that claimed the lives of two drivers. At the moment, they are still piecing together how the accident happened.
Details about the accident are sparse as of this report, but it has been confirmed that the accident took place around 7:30 a.m. the morning of Nov. 20. It appears both vehicles collided head-on, though it is not yet clear whether one of the drivers was traveling in the wrong lane. The impact was severe enough that traffic was stopped both ways for most of the day.
Charges have been filed pertaining to a fatal accident that led to the death of a 68-year-old man back in 2015. British Columbia police believe the fatal car accident may have been the result of the other driver behaving recklessly. The 35-year-old now faces charges of dangerous driving causing death. No court date has been announced at this time.
According to the accident report, the 68-year-old man was making a legal left-hand turn around 9 a.m. the morning of Nov. 14 when the accident occurred. The other vehicle, which police believe was travelling at nearly 150 km/h at the time of the crash, smashed into the side of his vehicle. The force of the impact seriously damaged both vehicles.
