Driver behind fatal 2017 Coquihalla crash that killed UBCO student receives $1,500 fine A man who crashed into a car on the Coquihalla Highway, causing the death of a 21-year-old university student, has been sentenced. George Holowko has been given a $1,500 fine after pleading guilty to driving without due care and attention. In April 2017 he was driving his son and his girlfriend to a hockey game in Kamloops. Amid wintry conditions, Holowko crashed into a car that had veered off the road onto the median. The driver of that car, Melissa Mimura, a Japanese student at UBC's Okanagan campus, was standing in front of her vehicle and killed by the impact.

The driver of the Porsche, a man from Washington state, was arrested at the scene and later released from custody as the investigation continues.

Teh says Cheung was a Canadian who emigrated from Hong Kong in 1996 and lived in Richmond with his family for many years.

"Tom was a kind, compassionate and humble individual who loved people and was always willing to help others. This tragedy brutally took away Tom from the family he dearly loved and has dreadfully impacted on the family," he says.

Teh adds Cheung was the main breadwinner of the family, and friends have created a fundraising page on the website GoFundMe to assist Athens and her children.
