    Thanks to the Guelph police and citizens for apprehending the driver who ended the young lady’s life just when she was starting a new life after graduating. I hope he is severely punished and not given a token sentence.

    Sorry to hear about this tragedy, glad they were caught… BUT this appeared on my Facebook feed and as an outsider who hasn’t heard of this, with the headline and image, it appeared as if the girl pictured was the one arrested… maybe caption that image or something?

    I am so sad for this family. What the boy who is responsible for this may not realize yet but this will forever affect his family too. I am happy the police caught him. I hope both families find peace somewhere in this tragedy. Thank you Guelph Police for doing a hard but great job. Stay safe.

    Great work. Sounds like a flight risk so should not be allowed bail.

    Good swift arrest. Sounds like
    a flight risk and should be denied bail.

      Sadly it doesn’t work that way.

      That being said, the charge of Flight From Police Causing Death is punishable with a term of life:

    The police are simply amazing at what they do. May justice be served to the person or persons involved that killed an innocent individual.
