Charges have been upgraded against 31 year old Karen Fyfe in the crash in Kensington market back on May 10th.
Toronto Police say that at around 2:30a.m. Saturday morning, that Jay McGinn was struck by a passing vehicle as he attempted to get into a taxi cab. Police say the driver of the passing vehicle kept going as McGinn lay bleeding on the ground. The 28-year-old suffered severe head injuries and had been in critical condition at St. Michael’s Hospital, until his passing last Thursday.
A 31-year-old Oshawa woman, Karen Fyfe, was charged with failure to stop causing bodily harm after an incident in the Kensington Market area of the city. Charges have now been upgraded to impaired driving causing death, dangerous driving causing death and fail to stop causing bodily harm resulting in death.
Outside the courthouse, Karen Fyfe’s father, John spoke briefly with Newstalk 1010’s Amber Gero last Monday.
“I just want to say how bad we feel for the family and the poor young man in the hospital. Our heart goes out to them. We are parents, we understand, but what’s been done has been done. I’m so sorry.”
