The victims, 20 and 21 years old, were heading north in the bridge’s middle lane just before midnight when they lost control and spun into an oncoming West Vancouver Blue Bus, according to police. Another vehicle also got involved when it apparently tried to avoid the initial collision, but did not suffer serious damage. Emergency crews extracted the victims from the wreckage. One was pronounced dead at the scene and the other was rushed to hospital, but medical staff were unable to save him. Both men were from Richmond. Three people from the bus were also taken in for treatment with non-lifethreatening injuries. The other 12 passengers were reportedly uninjured. The crossing was closed for the remainder of the night while analysts tried to piece together the events that led to the crash. “The early indication is speed was a factor due to the extensive damage to the vehicle,” said Const. Tammy Khorram, a spokeswoman for the WVPD. No names have been released while investigators attempt to reach the victims’ families.

Hundreds of thousands of lights decorate the bridge and the park’s Cliffwalk. The lights will be officially turned on tomorrow, Dec. 1, and stay on to Jan. 5. Proceeds from admission will be donated to the B.C. Firefighters’ Burn Fund. Alexander Lawrence LaGlace, 48, entered the plea Thursday morning before B.C. Supreme Court Justice Terry Schultes near the end of a trial on a charge of seconddegree murder. In pleading guilty to manslaughter, LaGlace has admitted killing Tammy Cordone, 43, whose body was found in a tent in the West Vancouver park on May 19, 2009, but not that he intended to kill her. LaGlace will be sentenced in February, after completion of a psychiatric report. It was LaGlace himself who called 9-1-1 in the early morning hours to report that someone had killed Cordone. Police who first arrived at the campsite that day found Cordone’s body in the tent where the homeless couple had been camping.
