Woman who caused two deaths when she stopped to help ducks cross road may face prison.

September 25, 2014, Kitchener, Ontario

Posted by: Robert Deutschmann, Personal Injury Lawyer

In 2010 Ms. Czornobaj had stopped in a live lane on Hwy 30 in Quebec to help some ducklings cross the road when a motorcycle with two riders hit her car and died. The case proceeded to court where she was convicted of two counts of criminal negligence causing death.

The crown is now asking for a prison term of nine months and 240 hours of community service as an appropriate sentence.

This case is a very sad one, as the young woman lacked the experience behind the wheel to truly appreciate how dangerous her actions were, and the result was the death of two innocent people.  Please take the opportunity to review with your young drivers about the dangers of stopping in any live lane of traffic, but particularly on high speed highways.
