High speed a contributing factor in collision which killed three teenage hockey players, including Ronin Sharma

SURREY RCMP announced on Friday that it has been determined that high speed was a factor in the early morning collision in Fraser Heights on August 21 that claimed the lives of three teenage hockey players. The investigation still ongoing.

Ronin Sharma, Caleb Reimer and Parker Magnuson — who were members of the Delta Hockey Academy — were killed when their vehicle crashed into a tree in Surrey last Saturday.

Sgt. Elenore Sturko said that investigators have determined that the vehicle was travelling at a speed significantly greater than the posted speed limit at the time of the collision.

The Integrated Collison Analysis and Reconstructive Service (ICARS) and the Surrey RCMP Criminal Collison Investigation Team (CCIT) are continuing to investigate, working cooperatively with the BC Coroner’s Service. Further information is not expected to be released by Surrey RCMP.

“The entire community has been greatly impacted by the loss of these three young men,” said Sturko. Our thoughts remain with their friends and family during this difficult time.”
