Remember when Michael Maniago was killed back in 2008? The other driver swerved into his car killing him instantly and injuring his brother and friend at the intersection of Marquis of Lorne Trail and Sun Valley Blvd.
OFFICIAL POLICE REPORT
On Saturday the 29 November 2008 at approximately 2:26 AM, a VW Jetta was southbound on Sun Valley Blvd SE. This vehicle was being driven by a 20 year old Calgary man and had three other occupants. A Toyota 4 Runner was being driven northbound on Chaparral Blvd SE by a 19-year-old female with three other occupants. At the intersection of Marquis of Lorne Tr. SE, the Toyota 4 Runner initiated a left turn. The VW Jetta was traveling straight through the intersection and was struck on the driver side causing severe damage to both vehicles.
The driver of the VW Jetta passed away at the scene. The three other passengers of this car were transported to hospital, one with serious injuries.
The driver of the Toyota 4 Runner was not injured; one male passenger was taken to hospital with minor injuries and has since been released.
Alcohol was a factor in this collision.
The driver of the Toyota 4 Runner, Ashley McElgunn, pled guilty to failing to make a left turn safely and was given a $1,000 fine and is out there on the road again. We read that and it just solidifies the belief that there's no justice in Canada - Maniago deserved better!
