The driver of a Greyhound bus that was involved in a fatal four-vehicle crash south of Kersley in April 2017 was in Quesnel Provincial Court today (July 10).
Criminal charges were laid March 28, 2018, on Colin Lucas Dunlop, a Prince George resident. Dunlop faces one count of driving a motor vehicle without due care and attention for the April 21, 2017 incident.
In his appearance today, Dunlop was given a new court date of August 14, 2018, as agreed upon by the prosecutor and the defense. The August 14 appearance is scheduled to be an arraignment, during which the charges will be formally read. Dunlop is expected to enter a plea of either guilty or non-guilty at this appearance. This is Dunlop’s second time being scheduled an arraignment.
The fatal April 21 crash involved a Greyhound bus, which Dunlop was driving, a car, a pick-up truck and a tractor pulling farm equipment.
All four vehicles were travelling north.
The North District RCMP reported at the time that one person was killed and seven injured in the crash.
Michael Bailey was the tractor driver who died as a result of the crash.
Bailey’s wife Katina London was driving in the pick-up truck behind him for safety reasons, says a GoFundMe page set up to help the family, and she was knocked unconscious in the crash. She later recovered in hospital.
