^ and not that it necessarily would have helped, but always scan the intersection before you go.

really sucks if the driver was drunk and managed to avoid the drinking driving causing death. although i believe if they can prove they fled the scene knowing someone was injured or dead there are pretty severe penalties for that as well. even dangerous driving causing death is pretty severe

Sorry to hear.
I have a feeling a few people I know will have crossed paths with her. The restaurant industry in this city it seems like everyone is connected somehow. What an awful tragedy.

Or the RCMP that lied in court in an unrelated incident, then killed a motorcyclist while drunk and fled the scene allowing him to get off on a technicality.
We should get real fucking serious about these drunk driving laws.

I'm not sure if that's the same one.

I'm talking about this bullshit:
Not guilty verdict in fatal crash - Maple Ridge News
Quote:
A woman who lost control of her car, killing a young couple in Pitt Meadows three years ago was acquitted of dangerous driving causing death Wednesday following a trial in New Westminster Supreme Court.

As soon as Madame Justice Miriam Gropper said the words "not guilty" family and friends of the couple who was killed stormed out of the court room. Many burst into tears.

Rebecca ‘Beckie’ Dyer, 19, and her boyfriend, Johnny De Oliveira, 21, died around midnight Oct. 19. 2010, when a Toyota driven by Andelina Kristina Hecimovic skidded sideways over a concrete median, flipped and landed on top of their Suzuki Swift.

Hecimovic was driving in the right-turn-only lane when she crossed the intersection of Harris Road and Lougheed Highway on a red light. An expert estimated she hit the concrete median at a speed of between 100 or 110 km/hr.

Hecimovic took the stand in her defence during the trial and testified she was heading to her boyfriend's house after a trying day working as a nurse at Eagle Ridge Hospital where a suicidal young man vomited on her.

Choking back tears, Hecimovic told the court she was thinking about her shift and suddenly smelled something odd as she approached the intersection. When she looked at her scrubs she noticed vomit on her shirt and burst into tears.

She was trying to wipe the tears off her face and focus on the road when she realized she had run a red light.

Crown alleged Hecimovic made a series of "deliberate" decisions that led to her losing control of her car after she hit a concrete island.

Justice Gropper disagreed.

She believed that Hecimovic was not trying to beat the red light.

The judge found Hecimovic's behaviour was not a "marked departure from the norm" as many people speed along that particular stretch of Lougheed Highway.

Justice Gropper also believed that Hecimovic was unfamiliar with that stretch of highway although her fiancÚ had lived about a kilometre ahead, on Meadows Gardens Way, for almost two years before the crash.

The Meadows Gardens Way address was also listed on Hecimovic's novice license.

"The move to the right lane was an error but not a deliberate attempt to get ahead of traffic," said Justice Gropper.

She found there was no evidence presented to show that Hecimovic was trying to jump the red light.

"Going through a red light is dangerous but it happens. People misperceive lights," Justice Gropper added.

"I accept the accused evidence that she did not see the light until she was at the intersection."

In short, Justice Gropper characterized Hecimovic's driving as "simple carelessness."

"The Crown has not met the heavy onus required. I am not convinced beyond a reasonable doubt that the accused's driving constitutes the offence of dangerous driving causing death," she said.

The "not guilty" verdict came as a surprise to the family and friends of Dyer and De Oliveira. De Oliveira's father John broke a table as he left the courtroom seething with anger.

"I'm so shocked," said De Oliveira's mother Audrey, in tears outside court.

Both families want Crown to appeal the verdict. They are now part of the activist group Families for Justice. The group is lobbying Ottawa for stiffer penalties for drivers who cause fatal crashes.

Quoting her daughter's favourite phrase "Be the change you wish to see in the world," Debbie Dyer said she had to live up to that.

"It's not over," said Dyer. Beckie was her only child.

"Justice wasn't served today. There was no example made today. It's not fair that she gets off with nothing."
Fortunately, there's still a chance justice will be served in the retrial.

Wow that is so sad. I'd say, they ran but they are going to have to feel that guilt forever... But since they ran... they probably aren't capable of that feeling in the first place. RIP.

I think the most fucked up thing about fleeing an accident is, people don't always die on impact. Those first moments are the difference between life and death in serious accidents so often. If you are willing to take off without doing all you can to help someone, its no longer just an accident and a bad decision. It shows a type of intent that is unforgivable.

Considering that the vast majority of people will simply drive around an accident rather than help out, I would hesitate to come to such a harsh judgement without knowing the full story. After getting knocked around in an accident, I don't think panicking and running shows any kind of "intent", more panic and fear.

i dunno. blowing through a red light in a "fraudulently obtained" vehicle going over 100km/h (according to the police) is enough for me
