A 34-year-old woman accused of striking and killing a pedestrian with her vehicle during the summer is expected to resolve her charges without a trial.
The matter was in Lethbridge provincial court Tuesday, where Shannon Goodstriker’s lawyer said the case is headed for resolution but he still needs time to “hammer out an agreed statement of facts” with the Crown.
On Aug. 1 Lethbridge police responded to a collision shortly after 10 a.m. on Mayor Magrath Drive and 12 Avenue South. Police said a southbound truck struck a 54-year-old woman, who was rushed to the Chinook Regional Hospital, but later died.
Goodstriker of Lethbridge is charged with impaired driving causing death, impaired driving causing death with a blood alcohol level over .08 per cent, and dangerous driving causing death.
Goodstriker’s next court hearing is scheduled for Dec. 14.
