A young Toronto hockey star won’t spend any time in jail after the vehicle he was driving crashed through a guard-rail and plunged into the Don River over a year ago -- killing a 16-year-old passenger.
According to a report from CityTV, the accused pleaded guilty to careless driving. Punishment for that crime includes a $1000 fine, one year of probabtion, and having his license suspended for a year.
Only 16 years old at the time, he can't be named under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
The teen was initially charged with dangerous operation of a vehicle causing death and criminal negligence causing death.
The SUV was headed east on Lake Shore on March 29, 2013 when it crossed three lanes and crashed through the rail into the River.
The driver and three other teens managed to get out, but 16-year-old AJ Blugerman was trapped. Blugerman died later in hospital.
