A 33-year-old woman charged in relation to a fatal collision with a pedestrian earlier this year isn’t scheduled to be back in court until next month.
The matter for Bobbi Raquel Whillans was spoken to briefly Friday in Lethbridge court of justice, then adjourned to Oct. 13 to allow defence and the Crown prosecutor assigned to the case time to continue having resolution discussions.
Whillans is charged with dangerous driving causing death and dangerous driving causing bodily harm.
The charges stem from a collision at the intersection of 26 Avenue and 28 Street North about 3 p.m. on Jan. 17. A 66-year-old man died and a 62-year-old woman sustained life-threatening injuries and was taken to Chinook Regional Hospital and later transferred to Calgary by STARS.
Police determined a GMC truck was travelling east on 26 Avenue North, and while turning onto 28 Street struck the pedestrians as they crossed the street in the crosswalk. The driver immediately stopped and called 911.
