Charges laid in fatal Vernon motor vehicle accident

Charges have been laid after a fatal motor vehicle accident a year-and-a-half ago.

Vernon resident Howard Horning, 82, died during a two-vehicle collision on Highway 97, near Highland Road, April 3, 2011.

Horning was a passenger in a Ford mini-van driven by his wife when she attempted to turn left on to Highland Road, near Swan Lake Nurseryland. The vehicle was struck by a southbound Mazda.

Crown has approved a charge of dangerous driving causing death against the driver of the Mazda, John Moesker, 29, of Creston.

Moesker, who was from Salmon Arm at the time of the accident, is scheduled to be in court Dec. 13 for a first appearance.
