More from the article:
Andre Roy, 50, and his daughter Jessie, 16, were killed when Roy’s Harley-Davidson chopper slammed into the rear of Czornobaj's Honda Civic on June 27, 2010.
Seconds earlier Czornobaj, a financial analyst, had stopped her car in the left lane of a provincial highway in Candiac, south of Montreal, after she spotted a group of ducklings on the median, CTV News reported. She got out of her car and tired to herd the ducks into her car.
Roy’s wife Pauline Volikakis was injured when her Yamaha motorcycle also slammed into Czornobaj’s car.
She did something stupid, but it seems to me that the bigger fault lies with the motorcycles: they didn't leave themselves enough reaction room, something that any sane (i.e., mildly paranoid) motorcyclist knows to do.
I don't see anything criminal here - but that's just me - so I guess the Canucks are just screwed up on this point. Ms. Czornobaj's negligence - and she was most assuredly negligent - should be left to the civil courts. Hopefully this will be reversed on appeal.
