Witnesses tell of night they were run off the road
Two young men have testified a late-night road-rage incident turned deadly after a truck ran them off the road, then returned to run down their friend.
Samuel Dooley, 23, and Luke Stephen, 25, said they were run off a desolate, dark road after trying to pass a truck that was braking. Their vehicle flipped into the ditch and when they got out to survey the damage, the truck returned, slamming into passenger Silas O'Brien, who died at the scene as his lifelong friends tried to revive him.
Many of Mr. O'Brien's family members and friends were in New Westminster Supreme Court on Monday for the trial of Brent Donald Parent, who is facing charges of criminal negligence causing death in the alleged road rage case.
Mr. Parent has pleaded not guilty.
