A Mission man has been arrested in relation to a fatal pedestrian crash which occurred last year.

Pare appeared in court on Wednesday, Feb. 13, and was released on a recognizance of bail with conditions.

The incident occurred on Feb. 1, 2018 at around 3 p.m. when police responded to a single vehicle pedestrian crash near a restaurant drive-thru located in the 23900 Block of Dewdney Trunk Road.

At that time, police said a black pickup left a parking stall, backed into a parked vehicle, then drove forward into a restaurant drive-through lane at 240th Street and Dewdney Trunk Road in Maple Ridge.

The truck then collided with barricades, jumped the curbed drive-through lane and came to a stop against an unoccupied bus stop.

Kelly Sandoval, a 35-year old Mission mother, and her six-year-old son were in the truck’s path. She pushed her son out of the way, but was hit and pushed against a fence at the McDonalds drive through.

She sustained an injured leg. The boy had a bump on his head.

On March 19, 2018, 46 days after the incident, Sandoval died as a result of alleged complications relating to the injuries she sustained from the crash.

A GoFundMe page has been set up for the family.
