Man charged in fatal Red Deer collision granted bail

A man facing charges of impaired driving causing death has been granted bail with conditions.

A man facing charges of impaired driving causing death has been granted bail with conditions.

Tyler James Wilson, 18, of Brooks was released following a hearing in Red Deer court on Monday.

Wilson is charged in the death of John Wood, 33, who was in the back seat of a taxi that was struck from behind by a pickup truck. The collision occurred on Nov. 2 at 3:30 a.m. at 30th Avenue and 32nd Street. Wood died at the scene.

Wood’s uncle Travis Gangl was frustrated that Wilson was granted bail without posting a cash bond.

Wilson’s bail conditions include prohibitions from using alcohol, driving and going into bars. Wilson must undergo random requests for drug or alcohol tests from RCMP, and must report to RCMP weekly.

Gangl said the judge made an informed and proper decision, but the Crown prosecutor could have encouraged further restrictions.

Wilson is to return to court at a later date.
