Granville Island Hit and Run

Granville Street Bridge Fatal Accident

On Saturday night a hit and run incident occurred on the Granville Street Bridge in Vancouver, British Columbia at 11:53 pm that killed 2 people.

The couple was crossing the crosswalk legally on West 4th Avenue, when a Black Buick SUV struck them so hard that one of the victims shoes went flying 30 feet from the scene.

The couple died at the scene.  The victims names have now been released as, Aneez Mohamed who was 31 and a cardiology resident at Vancouver General and St. Paul's hospital.  The woman was identified as Chanelle Morgan who was just 25 years old.

The couple had been dating since 2004 and just recently got engaged to be married.  That is so sad. :(

The driver of the SUV was a 18 year old with two passengers in the car.  They were both very young at just 14 and 16.

The 18-year-old driver ran North from the scene and headed to False Creek and dove in the water to try and get away.  Luckily police dogs soon found him and was in custody 20 minutes after the crash happened.  The driver now faces two counts of failure to remain at the scene, dangerous driving causing death and impaired driving causing death.

The other passengers stayed at the scene and were questioned by police and then released to their families.

The driver was believed to be intoxicated and speeding.  He lost control on a curve under the Hemlock Street onramp and slammed into the innocent couple.

If you have any information about this accident please call 604-717-3012 so police can reconstruct the scene of the crime so they can solve this horrific accident.
