Girl, 15, dies four years after minivan crashed in Alberta school

ST. PAUL, Alta. — A girl who was injured four years ago when a minivan plowed into a rural Alberta school, killing one student, has also died.

An obituary says 15-year-old Maddie Guitard died on Wednesday surrounded by family at her home in St. Paul, east of Edmonton.

It was October 2012 when the van crashed through a large window and brick wall into a lower-level Grade 6 classroom at Racette Junior High School.

Megan Wolitski, who was 11, was killed, and Maddie and another girl were injured.

Court heard that Maddie received a major brain injury and was left in a vegetative state.

The driver, Richard Benson, had had a seizure during the crash and later admitted that he had a medical condition that should have kept him from driving.
