After a nearly two-year-long investigation, the driver in a rollover crash that seriously injured a female passenger in June 2020 has pleaded guilty to Criminal Negligence Causing Bodily Harm and has received a two-year sentence.

On June 5, 2020 at 1:00 a.m., the Burnaby RCMP responded to a report that a Dodge Durango had rolled over at Gilmore Avenue and Halifax Street. The driver left the scene, leaving his female passenger with severe injuries.

Burnaby RCMP’s Criminal Collision Investigation Team took conduct of the investigation.

Several charges were approved in May 2021, but the suspect had left the province and a Canada-wide warrant was issued for his arrest.

In January 2022, with the assistance of Laval Police (Service du police de Laval), 33-year-old Quebec resident, Moussa Daoui, was arrested and returned to B.C.
