Brain condition may have caused Surrey crash that killed family

The crash that killed five members of a family in Surrey may have been caused by an undiagnosed brain tumour that caused the driver who hit them to run a red light, according to his lawyer.

Police said 46-year-old Daniel Gore, who was the sole survivor of the horrific crash, died in hospital Sunday.

The Langley father of two passed away following surgery for a brain tumour that was discovered as a result of being critically injured in the accident.

Gore’s family lawyer Richard Fowler said his children didn’t even know about the tumour, and now family and friends are wondering whether it caused him to pass out or have a seizure when he was behind the wheel that day.

Doctors will now try to establish whether the brain tumour was a contributing factor to the accident.

The investigation into this accident continues as police work to establish all contributing factors to the accident.

At the time of the crash Gore was driving a rented vehicle after his own car was destroyed recently when he was rear-ended.

B.C. court records do not show any speeding or traffic violations for him and his children say he was typically a very cautious driver.
