Tearful funeral, taxi procession for Vancouver cabbie killed in crash

Dozens of taxis participated in a procession Wednesday to honour Sanehpal Singh Randhawa, the Vancouver cab driver killed in a collision with a suspected drunk driver.

Randhawa was struck by a speeding Car2Go/ShareNow vehicle around 3:30 a.m. on Dec. 29 at East 1st Avenue and Renfrew Street. The driver of the other vehicle, confirmed by Global News as Irish national Gary Holohan, remains in hospital in serious condition.

“It’s a sad day,” said Yellow Cab president Kulwant Sahota ahead of a funeral service in Delta for Randhawa.“It’s somebody from the Yellow Cab family, from the family of the taxi industry that we’ve lost. And such a young person.”

Randhawa’s family was in Canada for the service, and spoke tearfully to a packed house about the loss of their son and brother.After the funeral, Randhawa’s brother Jatinderdeep, who lives in Brisbane, said Sanehpal had planned to travel to Australia to meet his four-year-old nephew for the first time in February.
