SASKATOON, SK – Saskatchewan’s Bert Baxter Transport will pay more than $400,000 in damages for a collision five years ago that destroyed two homes in Saskatoon.
Driver Anthony Dale Voth was driving south on Circle Drive when he veered from the road, drove over an off ramp, crossed two ditches and a berm before crashing into the basement of a home under construction, CTV reports. That sparked a fire which spread to another home being built at a site.
Voth died in the crash. A judge ruled that the company could not prove its driver wasn’t negligent.
