Sikh teen dies in car accident in Canada
Taren Singh Lal was driving home when his Tesla crashed into a utility pole near the intersection of Fraser Highway and 228th Street in Langley, British Columbia.
The force of the crash, which occurred earlier this month, flattened a fence and toppled a tree, Global News reported.
The Langley Royal Canadian Mounted Police said they were called to the scene of the accident at Fraser Highway and 228th Street.
Lal, a student at Tamanawis Secondary School in Surrey, died on the spot.
His mother told Omni News that she spoke to her son just before the crash and asked him to get some food on the way home.
The family told the channel that they call the police every day, with no updates.
In a statement to OMNI News, the Langley RCMP said: “Investigators continue to investigate all causative factors. These are complex studies and the investigation is still very early in the process.”
The GoFundMe page was set up to support Lal’s family, especially his 12-year-old sister.
The page described Lal as “a loving son, protective older brother, unforgettable friend and a beloved role model to those around him”.
He was involved in the community through sports activities and had hoped to join the police force in the future.
