Charges laid 3 weeks after fatal pedestrian crash

Windsor police have decided to lay charges in a fatal pedestrian crash after saying they were not likely.

Paul Dupuis, 51, was struck and killed by a minivan while he was walking near Lauzon Rd. and McHugh St. on March 15. His family told CBC News they had many questions about the crash, and weren't getting enough information from police.

Initially, witnesses told police the driver was not at fault. 

However, police said Wednesday that charges have been laid against the 46-year-old minivan driver. He's charged with making a left turn while "failing to afford reasonable opportunity to avoid a collision." The man is also charged for not having insurance.

The registered owner of the vehicle is also charged for permitting the minivan to be driven without insurance.
