U-turn driver: no charges yet

La Presse has a brief piece saying that the driver whose U-turn on Camillien-Houde caused the death of a cyclist will be facing charges. The young man’s family held a funeral on the weekend.

Update: Newer items say the news about charges was a mistake and that the investigation is ongoing. “Denis Coderre […] said he’s putting together a working group to analyze the road’s use and see if anything can be done to make Camillien-Houde Way safer.” Get motor traffic off it, Denis. It’s not difficult.

The driver is said to be an American tourist, but I wonder if he’s someone the authorities don’t want to offend. It’s difficult to see how his U-turn would not be considered dangerous driving causing death.
