Northern Ontario man charged in Vancouver woman's death
A charge of careless driving has been laid against a northern Ontario man whose pickup truck struck and killed a Vancouver woman last month.
Saoirse Sankey, 20, was walking along the north shoulder of the Trans-Canada Highway near Coniston, Ont., when she was hit by the westbound pickup truck on Aug. 31.
Ontario Provincial Police said an 18-year-old man from Lively, Ont., has since been charged with careless driving.
He is due to appear in a Sudbury court in November.
