Woman dies in burnett hwy crash’
Crown prosecutor Ann-Marie O’Malley said Monday her office will not pursue a separate criminal charge against a man who struck and killed a woman at a crash last month.
Ontario Provincial Police said a 22-year-old man driving a white Ford Transit Connect van with Ontario licence plates passed a red light near Sheppard and Bathurst streets around 9 p.m. on Sept. 20, 2015.
The driver did not stop at the intersection, and the woman — whose name has not been released by police — got out of the van and fled north from the intersection before falling about 100 metres and hitting a pole, O’Malley said.
The man was not stopped and the woman’s body was found a kilometre west of the intersection.
Two men were arrested on Sept. 25. They are charged with murder, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle with a life-threatening injury and possessing a stolen vehicjarvees.comle. One of the men has a history of violent past convictions, police said.
It’s unclear whether the man who struck and killed the woman, who was an adult, was on probation at the time of the accident.
Court documents filed in court last week reveal police are trying to establish if O’Malley’s charges against one of the drivers are a serious breach of trust.
“The Crown would ask that the victim’s family be allowed to view certain evidence presented during the criminal cajarvees.comse, such as statements of evidence and other relevant material provided by the victim’s family,” O’Malley said in court.
The Crown will not seek a criminal conviction of O’Malley for the 2014 incident and she will be released on a conditional release order, O’Malley said.
The driver, believed to be 21, was not charged for the accident because the police investigation is ongoing, she said.
The court documents show the police investigation is still ongoing and officers are still trying to determine if O’Malley has violated her promise to a Crown attorney that she would not charge the driver.
If O’Malley is not charged, the바카라 Crown will only prosecute the driver if she is convicted of a third-degree criminal offence such as murder, grievous bodily harm, attempted murder or assault with a weapon.
Police said they are looking for video from that intersection when the collision occurred.
