Driver not guilty in fatal crash

A Lavington man has been found not guilty in Vernon Supreme Court Friday on two charges stemming from a fatal crash

Two charges of Dangerous Driving Causing Death and Dangerous Driving Causing Bodily Harm were laid in 2012, a year after a crash took the life of Randy Duncan in April 2011 just east of Lumby.

Terrance Edward Brown was allegedly behind the wheel of a Super B tractor trailer unit that struck the pick-up driven by Duncan.

The two passengers in the pick-up, including the driver's infant daughter Kayleigh Duncan and her mother, were taken to hospital.

Earlier in 2014, the now preschooler was awarded $560,000 by a B.C. Supreme Court judge for the loss of her father in the motor-vehicle accident.
