Hit & Run Drunk Driver Walks

Trevor Clarke, 37, of Ottawa, Canada, was four times over the DUI limit when he hit a bicyclist with his truck and kept on going. Nurse Jennifer Leanord, 45, is now a near vegetable with traumatic brain injury.


Clarke was convicted of driving drunk and causing extreme bodily harm. But Justice David Paciocco ruled “…I must, however, find Mr. Clarke not guilty of the failing to stop offense...because he was so drunk."

So it appears drunk drivers get-out-of-jail-free as long as they don't stop to help those they cut down while driving piss-assed piflicated. At least in Canada...
