Driver pleads not guilty to careless driving after accident kills little boy
ST. ALBERT — A school bus driver has pleaded not guilty to charges laid after a six-year-old boy was struck and killed as he was crossing the street.
Joseph Allen of Edmonton has been charged with careless driving and failing to yield to a pedestrian.
Thomas Wedman of St. Albert was in Grade 2 and was headed to school when he was killed on the morning of Sept. 27.
The not guilty pleas come on the same day as a decision by St. Albert city council to conduct a safety review of community intersections.
On Monday afternoon, city councillors voted in favour of supporting a committee that will conduct a review of the intersections around each of St. Albert’s twenty-five schools.
