After losing 15-year-old Lidia in a single-vehicle crash near Mission last Sunday morning, Langley’s Ramos family is now dealing with another tragic loss.
Lidia’s cousin, Shaun Sutton, was killed yesterday evening in a collision at the intersection of 16 Avenue and 197A Street, reportedly while on his way to visit his grieving aunt, Angela — Lidia’s mother.
Police were called at 5:30 p.m. on March 10 for what appeared to be a rear-end collision between a Ford Mustang and a Dodge Ram pickup truck.
Early investigation suggests the eastbound Mustang had stopped at 197A Street to make a left hand turn and was rear-ended by a Dodge pickup truck.
There were three occupants in the Mustang, including Sutton in the back seat, who was killed.
“I don’t know what my family has done so wrong that we are being (picked) off one by one,” Sutton’s aunt, Tanya Fincaryk, wrote on a Gofundme page that is raising money to cover his funeral costs.
“I’m losing my faith and don’t know what to say or feel, I am feeling lost.
“So many people have already helped for Lidia Ramos, I am now asking you if you can please help my sister Leilani with paying to give her baby boy, her last one, a good funeral.”
Tonight (March 11) the family is holding a candlelight vigil for Lidia at City Park at 6 p.m. It would have been her 16th birthday.
The driver of the Ram and the other occupants of the Mustang sustained only minor injuries in Thursday’s crash.
ICARS has been called to assist with the investigation. Any witnesses are asked to call Langley RCMP at 694-532-3200.
The family has set up a gofundme page here.
