Charges laid in fatal crash

Charges have been laid against a B.C. man following a crash more than a year ago that killed one young woman and injured another in Delta.

An RCMP release says 44-year-old Burnaby resident Chao Chen faces two charges, including impaired driving causing death, related to the June 2, 2018, collision that killed 19-year-old Olivia Malcolm.

Charges were laid on Aug. 16 and Chen appeared in court and was released on several conditions, including an order to return to provincial court in Surrey on Sept. 24.

Malcolm and her 20-year-old friend were standing behind their vehicle which was parked off the shoulder of Highway 17A in Delta last June when they were hit from behind by a Jeep.

Malcolm died at the scene.

She was remembered as a prominent member of the local lacrosse community, and an online funding campaign in the months after her death raised more than $100,000 for a bursary to support post-secondary education.
