On March 19, 2018, Sandoval died «as a result of alleged complications relating to the injuries sustained from the crash»
A Mission man has been charged with criminal negligence causing death, impaired driving and failing to stop at the scene of an accident — more than a year after the crash.
The accident occurred on Feb. 1, 2018, when a pickup truck reversed out of a parking stall in a mall in the 23900-block of Dewdney Trunk Road. It struck another vehicle, then entered the drive-through of a fast-food restaurant, jumped a curb and hit a woman and her son. The woman was able to push her son out of the way but she was pinned against a fence.
Sgt. Brenda Gresiuk of the Ridge Meadows RCMP said the woman, Kelly Sandoval, and her son were treated for non-life-threatening injuries. The alleged driver, Travis Pare, 35, was arrested later in the day.
However, on March 19, 2018, Sandoval died “as a result of alleged complications relating to the injuries sustained from the crash.”
Gresiuk said Pare appeared in court on Feb. 13 and was released on bail. Sandoval was married with four children.
