Young Clayton Heights couple killed in Delta car crash

The two teenagers killed in a five-car crash along a Delta stretch of road between Highway 91 and Scott Road late Monday afternoon have been identified as Clayton Heights Secondary students.

Chantal MacLean and her boyfriend Cody Kehler, both 17, were on their way to a family dinner when their vehicle lost control on a curve and they went into oncoming traffic. Both died in the impact.

Although Delta Police did not confirm their identities, family and friends have taken to social media to share the tragic news.

“It is with a broken heart I share this news. Last night, my beautiful little sister, Chantal, passed away in a car accident. I can’t cry enough tears to make it better. It doesn’t feel real,” said Shakeira MacLean via Facebook.

“She was with her boyfriend Cody, on their way to his family’s thanksgiving dinner. They both passed away instantly because of the impact of the crash and we were told there was no suffering.

“I don’t know what to say other than this feels so unfair. My heart aches.”

MacLean was a star athlete at Clayton Heights Seconday in girls rugby. The teen led her Tier II B.C. high school team, the Night Riders, to a provincial championship last May in Vancouver, scoring three converts in a 31-5 victory over Alberni. MacLean was also named to Team BC’s U-18 roster, and in August went on to win national gold in Calgary by defeating Ontario 10-7.

The couple, who had been dating since the beginning of the 2012 school year, were popular students at Clayton Heights Secondary. The school will have extra counsellors on hand this week to deal with grief counselling.
