Adjournment for driver in pedestrian fatality case

By Delon Shurtz - Lethbridge Herald on January 5, 2022.


A 34-year-old Lethbridge woman accused of striking and killing a pedestrian with her vehicle during the summer has been granted another court adjournment while defence and the Crown continue to work toward resolving her charges without a trial.
The matter was in Lethbridge provincial court Tuesday, where Shannon Goodstriker’s lawyer said he has received an agreed statement of facts from the Crown, but needs time to review the document with his client.
Lethbridge police responded to a collision shortly after 10 a.m. Aug. 11 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.
Her next court hearing is scheduled for Jan. 25.
