Three charges laid after August crash on Pattullo Bridge that damaged 30 cars

NEW WESTMINSTER, B.C. — A 30-year-old Surrey, B.C., woman faces three charges linked to a multi-vehicle crash on the Pattullo Bridge linking New Westminster and Surrey.

New Westminster Police say Jillian Bodner faces three counts, including dangerous driving, impaired driving and driving while over .08.

The charges are linked to a bizarre incident on Aug. 6, 2015, when a burgundy sedan raced northbound across the bridge colliding with more than 30 oncoming vehicles.

At the time, witnesses described the car driving straight up the centre-line of the bridge, flattening divider pylons as vehicles travelling in both directions swerved to get out of the way.

The lone driver of the vehicle was eventually stopped when the car rammed a concrete barrier.

No one was seriously hurt.
