The BC Coroner has identified the 17-year-old Cedar Secondary student who died in a longboarding accident outside the school. Ryan Wallace-Tarry was killed on Monday, January 20, when he collided with a truck on Macmillan Road around 6:00pm.
Cedar Secondary School Principal Chad Lintott says classmates and teachers are trying to come to terms with the tragedy but the loss is being felt by many at the school.
Lintott says counselling, including group sessions and individual counselling, will be available at the school for as long as it’s required.
Meanwhile, the BC Coroners Service and RCMP Traffic Services are still investigating and there’s no decision on whether the 28-year-old driver involved will face charges.
