Coroners service identifies Hwy 4 accident victims

The BC Coroners Service has identified the victims of an MVI on Hwy 4 as Carla Webster, 29, Arlene Titian, 30, and Edward John, 29.

The three victims of a single vehicle accident on Highway 4 on Sept. 8 have been identified by the BC Coroners Service.

The dead have been identified as:

Arlene Marie Titian, 30, of Ahousaht.

Carla Annete Webster, 29, of Ahousaht.

And Edward Patrick Paul John, 29, of Kyuquot/Checleseht.

According to RCMP, a single vehicle traveling west drove off the right side of the road, rolled over, and burst into flames.

Police have learned more about the victims movements on Sept. 8.

The three were in Port Alberni to attend the Alberni District Fall Fair before leaving for Ahousaht with a group travelling in another car, RCMP Cpl. Jan Allan said. “The other car arrived in Tofino first and were concerned when the second group never arrived.”

The fire caused extensive damage requiring more time for the coroner to identify the three, BC Coroner’s Service spokesperson Barb McLintock said.

Members of the Ahousaht First Nations gathered at the accident scene last week to perform a traditional cleansing of the site, Allan said.

The cause of the crash hasn’t been established. The BC Coroners Service and RCMP Traffic Services continue to investigate the incident.
