2 dead in car accident in British Columbia

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.

British Columbia driver charged in fatal accident is sentenced

The father of a car accident victim feels cheated by the justice system after the driver responsible for his child's death received a comparatively light sentence, according to reports. British Columbia authorities sentenced a 64-year-old man to 15 months in prison for his role in a fatal accident that killed a 16-year-old boy two years ago. Thankfully, there are other options available to the family if they wish to pursue further action against him.

Drunk driving deaths rise in B.C. during the summer

In the summer there are many activities that residents of British Columbia engage in more than other times during the year. In addition to participating in seasonal activities such as boating and biking, more people get behind the wheel to drive after consuming alcoholic drinks. At least that is what can be assumed based on statistics. Close to half -- or 46 per cent -- of all deaths that are related to impaired driving in B.C., occur between the months of June and September. In addition, it is the third-leading cause of deaths on provincial roads throughout the summer. Only speeding and distracted driving cause more fatal crashes.
