Man Convicted of Leaving Scene of Motorcycle Accident

Then Hamilton Spectator reported today that Brandon Parkinson-Evans, the friend of a man who died in a motorcycle accident has been convicted of leaving the scene of the accident. The Court heard that on July 27th 2018, Parkinson-Evans and his friend, Tyler Coutts, were driving along Dominion Road near Helena Street at about 3 a.m. when they failed to negotiate a curve in the road and both lost control of their motorcycles. Parkinson-Evans slid across a gravel driveway and came to rest in a ditch, while the deceased, Coutts, vaulted over the ditch and hit a parked car, suffering a terrible head injury. The Spectator reported that Parkinson-Evans fled the scene as his best friend Tyler Coutts lie dying.  He was taken to a Buffalo NY trauma centre, where he unfortunately succombed to his injuries. There is no allegations that Parkinson-Evans caused the accident, or his friend’s death.

Parkinson-Evans was sentenced to time served, prohibited from driving for 5 years after he plead guilty to charges including failing to remain at the scene of an accident, careless driving and mischief. He had served the equivalent of 13.5 behind bars in pre-sentence custody.  It was alleged that at the time of the accident, he did not have a valid motorcycle licence, has previous convictions for dangerous driving and fleeing from police as well as five speeding violations under the Highway Traffic Act.
