An Ottawa bus driver has been found not guilty of dangerous driving causing death and bodily harm in the double-decker bus crash that killed three in January 2019.
Aissatou Diallo, 44, was charged in August 2019 with 35 counts of dangerous driving causing bodily harm and three counts of dangerous driving causing death after the bus she was driving struck an overhead at the Westboro bus station.
The trial — which lasted over 10 weeks — ended on June 2 and the verdict was announced Wednesday.
Ontario Court Justice Matthew Webber said sun glare and road markers were a factor in the driver losing control of the bus and rolling onto the pedestrian platform where it struck an overhang on January 11, 2019.
Webber said Diallo was driving somewhat over the speed limit but not dangerously in his verdict.
