CASE LAW - Donato v Quach

BC Courts Coat of ArmsThis case involves a collision at the intersection of 86 Avenue and 160 Street in Surrey. Joshua Donato had stopped for the stop sign westbound on 86 Avenue intending to turn right. Due to limited visibility he moved forward and slightly to the right in anticipation of making the turn.

Lai Quach was driving southbound on 160 Street intending to turn left onto 86 Avenue. She collided with Mr. Donato's vehicle in the process of making that turn.

Madam Justice Morellato examined the law with regard to entering a highway after stopping for a stop sign and turning at intersections. She found that Ms. Quach failed to exercise due care and veered into Mr. Donato's vehicle while making her left turn. She was entirely responsible for the collision.
