VERNON, B.C. — Charges have been stayed against a 23-year-old British Columbia man accused of dangerous driving causing death.
Brandon McGregor of Spallumcheen was charged after his pickup truck crossed the centre line on Highway 97 south of Vernon in March 2013 and hit a car.
The collision killed 19-year-old Eric Robertson of Armstrong, who was a passenger in the truck, as well as 70-year-old Allan Allport and his 67-year-old wife Fay from Salmon Arm who were in the car.
McGregor's trial was supposed to have started on Monday, but Crown spokesman Neil MacKenzie says the charges were stayed.
He says the Crown received new evidence and concluded it wouldn't be able to prove criminal conduct by McGregor.
MacKenzie says McGregor's truck may have crossed the centre line for medical reasons but could not say anything more for privacy reasons. (CKIZ)
