Man charged in collision that took the lives of two UBC students

BY Connect News, Sep 9, 2022 1:40 AM - REPORT AN ERROR

A Vancouver man has been charged in connection with a single-vehicle collision in which two students were struck and killed near the University of British Columbia.

On September, 26, 2021, two UBC students were killed while walking on a sidewalk near North West Marine Drive at approximately 1:46 a.m.

The University and Richmond RCMP worked tirelessly on this investigation for nearly one full year to get to this point of charge approval, says University RCMP Detachment Commander Staff-Sergeant Chuck Lan.

Our partners with the Integrated Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Service (ICARS), Integrated Forensic Identification Service (IFIS) along with many other investigators from BC RCMP Major Crime have been diligent in their efforts to provide a complete and fulsome investigation to the BC Prosecution Service.

Tim Carl Robert Goerner, 22 of Vancouver has been charged with two counts each of impaired driving causing death, dangerous driving causing death and impaired driving.

This was a difficult and tragic of incident and I want to offer my deepest condolences to the parents of Emily Selwood, 18 and Evan Smith, 18. Our thoughts go out to the families of these two students, Lan added.

The families of the two students killed are asking for privacy at this time and do not wish any media inquiries, and instead have provided the written statements.
