A Calgary man facing criminal charges in connection with a fatal collision near Beiseker has been sentenced to seven days in jail for breaching bail conditions.

Lloyd Louis Gerard, 40, was arrested near Innisfail on Saturday evening by members of the Innisfail Integrated Traffic Unit, who allege that he was observed breaching bail conditions.

Gerard was released on charges of dangerous driving causing death and leaving the scene of a fatal collision. The charges were laid in connection with a two-vehicle crash in June in which a 51-year-old Beiseker woman was killed.

Gerard pleaded guilty in Red Deer provincial court on Monday to two counts of breaching conditions of his release.

Along with his jail sentence, he has been ordered to pay a victim of crimes surcharge of $50.

He returns to court in Airdrie on Nov. 15 to address the dangerous driving causing death and hit and run charges.
