Driver In Fatal Coquitlam Tesla Crash Was Impaired, Driving 150 Km/h In A 60 Zone, Mounties Say

Darpan News Desk, 11 Jul, 2019

    A Coquitlam RCMP investigation has found that impairment and speed, not mechanical or computer failure, were the decisive factors in a fatal, single-vehicle crash earlier this year involving a Tesla.


    The crash happened on Lougheed Highway near Alderson Avenue just before 1:00 a.m. on March 18, 2019. The driver and lone occupant of a Tesla was killed when the vehicle lost control and left the road.


    A thorough police investigation, led by Coquitlam RCMP’s Criminal Collision Investigation Team (CCIT), has determined that the driver had more than 3 times the legal amount of alcohol in his system and was travelling over 150 km/h in a 60 km/h zone.


    Due to Privacy Act considerations, the name of the driver will not be released.
