A B.C. nurse will learn today if she’ll spend time behind bars for a deadly crash that killed two young people in Pitt Meadows seven years ago.
Andelina Hecimovic is in court for sentencing Thursday, after being found guilty of two counts of dangerous driving causing death in a re-trial in January.
Hecimovic was behind the wheel in 2010 when her vehicle flipped, landing on 19-year-old Beckie Dyer and 21-year-old Johnny De Oliviera’s Suzuki Swift in 2010.
She was going 130 km/hr in an 80 km/hr zone and had run a red light.
It was the second trial for Hecimovic, who was acquitted in the crash in 2013 when the judge ruled the incident a tragic accident, and that Hecimovic’s actions were careless but not criminal.
The decision outraged Dyer and De Oliviera’s families, and the Crown appealed. A re-trial was granted in 2014.
