Emma Czornobaj, the driver who stopped to help ducks across the road, causing a Harley-Davidson rider and passenger to die after hitting her car, is back on the road.
Back in June, Czornobaj was convicted of criminal negligence causing death, and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle. In December, she was sentenced to 90 days in jail, 240 hours of community service and was also handed a 10-year driving ban.
Czornobaj is appealing her trial, though, and as a result, Quebec Court of Appeal Justice Yves-Marie Morissette has suspended her sentence and ordered her drivers’ licence be reinstated for now. So, until her appeal has been heard, Czornobaj is allowed to drive, and will reside at a home in Laval, instead of jail. She was supposed to start serving her term this month, but that’s on hold for now.
