Years after the crash a Campbell River woman has been awarded almost a million dollars in damages by a Supreme Court Judge.
Back in 2007 Erika Watkins was on her way to work early in the morning when she was T- boned by an RCMP cruiser at Dogwood St. and Pinecrest Rd.
B.C. Supreme Court Justice Murray Blok wrote in his decision, “it is clear that Ms. Watkins has had, and continues to have, many problems associated with her head injury, including headaches, mood changes, anxiety, fears associated with driving, difficulty with memory, poor concentration, distractibility, fatigue, problems with balance, irritability and noise intolerance.”
RCMP constable David Dormuth admitted in court that he was speeding as much as 30 kilometers an hour over the limit as he rushed to where it was believed a bait car was being stolen.
