Unexpected delay at pedestrian fatal trial

The trial of a man accused of hitting a pedestrian in Coldstream as she walked to work shortly before 9 p.m. on April 30, 2010 has been delayed.

Supreme Court judge Frank Cole issued the delay following an application by Crown lawyer Iain Currie Wednesday afternoon.

Currie wants a video statement given by Crown witness Nick Hlina to be played in its entirety, stating the answers Hlina gave on May 1, 2010, when he was recorded, were different than answers he gave to Currie's questions Wednesday.

Cole asked both Currie and defence lawyers Glenn Verdurmen and Paul Danyliu to have case law and written submissions presented to him on Thursday.

Cole ordered court to reconvene Friday morning at 9 a.m. at the Vernon Court House when he will give his decision on Crown's application.

Chase Garett Donaldson is charged with criminal negligence causing death and failing to stop at an accident causing bodily harm in connection with the death of Kiera-Leigh Carlson in April 2010.
