BURLINGTON, Ont. — Things have gone from bad to worse for the former truck driver charged with taking out the Burlington Skyway in August.
The Toronto Star reports driver Sukhvinder Rai, already charged with impaired driving, now faces further charges of dangerous driving, mischief endangering life and three counts of criminal negligence causing bodily harm.
All charges stem from the same incident, in which Rai’s raised dump box plowed into the Burlington Skyway, taking it out of commission for several days. Rai appeared in court yesterday and is currently out on bail.
He’ll be back in court Nov. 7.
