Hamed Darbarpar pleaded guilty in connection with the April 28, 2017 multi-vehicle fatal collision on Lougheed Highway in Coquitlam and was sentenced to one day in jail and six months’ probation after a joint submission from Crown and the defence.
Earlier, Adam Goulding had pleaded guilty and was also sentenced to one day in jail and six months’ probation last December.
THE BC Prosecution Service has laid another Motor Vehicle Act charge for a collision that killed three people on April 28, 2017, Coquitlam RCMP announced on Tuesday.
After further review of the police investigation, one count of driving without due care and attention has been laid against Hamed Darbarpar, a 20-year-old Port Coquitlam man.
A total of two people have now been charged for the fatal collision on Lougheed Highway just north of Pitt River Road.
Adam Goulding, 31, of Surrey, was charged last week with one count of driving without due care and attention.
On April 28, 2017, at about 6:15 p.m., three cars collided on Lougheed Highway just north of Pitt River Road in Coquitlam. A three-year-old girl, a nine-year-old girl and a 30-year-old woman did not survive.
Neither Darbarpar nor Goulding have been arrested. Both 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 the BC Prosecution Service,” says 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.”
