A man who pleaded guilty to a hit-and-run car accident that killed a 25-year-old woman in Vancouver in March has begun his sentencing process. British Columbia residents may remember coverage of the car accident that has since been attributed to reckless driving. The proceedings were adjourned initially because nearly 50 of the woman’s friends and family made appearances to view the sentencing.
The accident report from March 9 states that around 11:30 p.m. the woman’s vehicle was T-boned by another car traveling at a high rate of speed. The driver of that vehicle, a 26-year-old man with a long history of criminal activity, fled the scene on foot along with his passenger. He was arrested several days later at a motel in Creston and charged with dangerous driving causing death and leaving the scene of a fatal accident.
