BONNYVILLE — A man accused in a fatal collision that killed four family members from an Alberta First Nation has reserved his plea.

Clayton Tyler Procinski is charged with manslaughter in the deaths of two sisters in their teens, their mother and her common-law husband on July 23.

The family from the Kehewin Cree Nation was on the way to a hospital in Bonnyville because one of the girls was sick.

The 30-year-old accused appeared in Bonnyville provincial court via closed-circuit TV from the Edmonton Remand Centre.

He remained motionless as 12 charges were read out against him, including manslaughter and criminal negligence causing death.

He didn’t have a lawyer yet, so his next court appearance was set for Sept. 15.
