One year after a fatal three-car collision in Coquitlam two people have now been charged in connection with the incident.
Surrey resident Adam Goulding is facing one count of driving without due care and attention. Goulding is not under arrest and will appear in court at a later date.
In addition, 20-year-old Port Coquitlam resident Hamed Darbarpar is facing one count of driving without due care and attention.
The fatal crash, which took place on the Lougheed Highway on April 28, 2017, near Pitt River Road around 6:15 pm, claimed the life of a three-year-old girl, a nine-year-old girl, and a 30-year-old woman.
“Our goal was always to provide the most complete and accurate version of events to the BC Prosecution Service,” said Coquitlam RCMP Cpl. Michael McLaughlin.
“We spoke with victims, witnesses, experts in digital data retrieval and vehicle manufacturers to gather every possible piece of evidence. We only hope this provides the victims’ families some measure of closure.”
Neither Darbarpar nor Goulding have been arrested.
Both will appear in court at a later date via Summons.
