Serious crash closes southbound lanes on Granville Street Bridge


VANCOUVER – The BC Coroners Service has now identified a man killed in a crash on the Granville Street Bridge earlier this week.

Khader Emile-George Yasmineh of Vancouver died early Thursday morning when his dark green Honda was rear-ended by a white Mercedes.

The force of the collision spun the Mercedes completely around and pushed the Honda off to one side of the bridge.

Sixty-two-year-old Yasmineh was pronounced dead at the scene.

The other driver was given a breathalyzer at the time and police say they believe alcohol was a factor. However, they have not said whether any charges have been laid yet in connection to the crash.
