Traffic was at a standstill as emergency responders and the RCMP responded to a serious collision near the Highway 101 ramps for Falmouth shortly before noon Tuesday, July 9.
The case of a Montreal truck driver charged with dangerous driving causing death and dangerous driving causing bodily harm in connection with a fatal crash that claimed the life of a young boy near Falmouth last summer was back before the court Sept. 2.
Mohammad Younus, 60, was not present for the pre-trial conference held in Windsor provincial court.
Younus is alleged to have caused the accident, which took place July 9, 2013 on in a construction zone highway 101 near the Falmouth exit. The accident claimed the life of a six-year-old Bedford boy travelling in the minivan with a 38-year-old woman, three-year-old girl and an eight-year-old girl.
Despite the fact neither counsel was prepared for the Sept. 2 hearing, Judge Claudine MacDonald ordered dates of the seven day trial, scheduled to begin Jan. 6, 2015, to stand as previously set.
Younus is also charged with entering inaccurate information on his daily driving log pursuant to the Commercial Vehicle Drivers Hours of Service regulations. He pleaded not guilty to the charges April 25.
