Man charged with manslaughter after woman struck by car on sidewalk
CALGARY — Calgary police have charged a man with manslaughter after a woman he was involved with was hit by a car.
Police say Lacey Yvonne Manion, 33, was in the car, then got out and was struck by the vehicle while on a sidewalk Monday afternoon.
An autopsy has concluded she died of blunt force trauma.
Kristoffer Del Campo, 30, is to appear in court Wednesday.
Both Manion and Del Campo were among four people charged in Medicine Hat, Alta., in May relating to fraud allegations involving credit cards, forged documents and stolen identities.
Relatives say that Manion grew up in Kamloops, B.C., as the youngest of five siblings.
They also say they were aware of her run-ins with the law and were concerned for her well-being.
Witnesses to Monday’s crash said they were alerted to the event when a man began screaming for help.
“I just heard screaming, that was it,” said Paul Young. “I ran out, saw feet, and put a jack under the car and jacked it up off of her.”
Manion was found underneath the driver’s side rear wheel. EMS arrived on scene in minutes, but it was already too late; she died at the scene.
