Drinking and Driving.

Hit and Run Accidents.

What an ugly combination.

Mr. Cory Slater is accused of both.

According to an article written by Jennifer Saltman, in the October 10, 2013, edition of  "The Province", Corey Sater is charged with 10 offenses in connection with a February 19, 2013, car accident which left Charlene Reavely and Lorraine Cruz dead and Paulo Calimbahin seriously injured.

Saltman's article says that ,at the  B.C. Supreme Court trial in this matter,  the crown introduced video evidencewhich indicates that :

" Shortly before 8p.m. on Feb 18, 2011, Slater went to his cousins's apartment in Burnaby....with what appears to be a Corona beer box in his hand"

The article goes on to say that later that same evening Slater and his cousin Troy Mclure went to the Lougheed Village Bar and Grill. And that at the trial:

" Crown previously entered two bars tabs into evidence, both of which were under McClure's name. One had a number of beers and two Jagerbombs, shots that consist of Jagermeister and Red Bull energy drink and added up to about $33. The other had six double rye and Cokes, food and two Jagerbombs and was billed for about $92."

The accident which is at the center of the case is described as  follows:

" Shortly before 12:30 p.m. on Feb 19, the Nissan Pathfinder that Cruz and Calimbahin were in crashed on Lougheed Hwy. southbound at Pitt River Road. Reavley and her husband Dan and two friends stopped to help.

 Minutes after Cruz and Calimbahin were extracted from their vehicle, a white Jeep Cherokee hit the Pathfinder and then ran into Calimbahin, Cruz and Reaveley."

Saltman's articles goes on to say that , " Sater turned himself in to police the day after the accident."

So, while the trial of Corey Sater continues that doesn't bring back the two women who were killed. Nor does it  help restore Paulo Calimbahin's health.

We'll await the judges decision. But it still doesn't change the underlying message.

Drinking and Driving.

Hit and Run Accidents.

Both are bad news.  But what an ugly combination.
