90 days Duck Crossing : Driver jailed for causing fatal crash while saving ducklings

A CANADIAN woman Sentenced To 90 Days In Jail For Duck Crossing Incident, the 26-year-old woman from the Montreal suburb of Châteauguay will also be prohibited from driving for 10 years and must perform 240 hours of community service.

Emma Czornobaj was convicted by a jury on two counts of criminal negligence for causing death and two counts of dangerous driving causing death.

The 25-year-old was charged in the deaths of Andre Roy, 50, and his daughter Jessie, 16.

After Czornobaj stopped her car in June 2010 to rescue ducklings on the side of a Montreal highway, a motorcycle carrying the victims slammed into her vehicle.

Czornobaj’s lawyer, Marc Labelle, said he likely wouldn’t appeal the 90-day sentence.

Her defence team argued she should only get the community service.
Pauline Volikakis, the wife and mother of the victims, said the family was hoping for a significant sentence and got it.
