Driver who struck 5 Kanata cyclists found guilty

Sommit Luangpakham guilty on all 10 charges of dangerous driving causing bodily harm and leaving the scene of an accident. Sentencing hearing on Jan. 6

Luangpakham testified Monday he fell asleep and only woke up when the wind hit his face after the windshield was smashed in.

He also said he thought he had hit a post and did not stop at the scene because he had not realized he hit people.

Defence lawyer Richard Addelman said Tuesday it was a case of momentary lapse in judgment.

Here is more. It shows a picture of the front windshield.

I hope they fry his ass.

No need to fry his ass. Just put him out on a chain gang working on high-speed roadways.

How could he not realize he hit people prior to leaving the scene. His claim of falling asleep is bogus.
