Motor Vehicle Act charges laid after collision claims three lives

Coquitlam, BC – A 31-year-old Surrey man is facing Motor Vehicle Act charges for a fatal collision that happened one year ago.

On Friday, April 28, 2017, at about 6:15 p.m., three cars collided on Lougheed Highway just north of Pitt River Road in Coquitlam. A 3-year-old girl, a 9-year-old girl and a 30-year-old woman did not survive.

Adam Goulding of Surrey 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 via Summons.

Our goal was always to provide the most complete and accurate version of events to Crown Counsel, says Corporal Michael McLaughlin with Coquitlam RCMP. 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.
