CASE LAW - R v Nikirk
If Tenessa Nikirk could undo the moments in her life that caused this collision, I have no doubt that she would. The bad judgment (and driving) that she exhibited on December 20, 2017 in Saanich lead to a collision with an 11 year old girl in a crosswalk leaving the girl with life shattering injuries that she will never recover from. Nikirk has been convicted of dangerous driving causing bodily injury.
Speeding, tailgating, texting and ultimately striking a child in a crosswalk led to the conviction. Judge D. M. McKimm examined the circumstances and concluded that Nikirk was driving dangerously. She will be sentenced at a future date.
