A Surrey woman has been found not criminally responsible for hitting a Burnaby traffic flagger with her car nearly two years ago.
The B.C. Prosecution Service said Brenda Ouma Aregay was found not criminally responsible for a number of charges related to the June 28, 2017 incident where video posted online showed her hitting a flagger near the New Westminster-Burnaby border.
The charges included two counts of assault with a weapon, two counts of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, two counts of failing to stop at scene, and two counts of assault.
In a Monday email, Crown spokesperson Dan McLaughlin said the file has been sent to the Review Board of B.C., which handles cases relating to people found not criminally responsible due to mental health issues.
A hearing must be held by the review board within 45 days.
