Sainte-Rose daycare bus crash driver sent to trial

A memorial was set up outside Sainte-Rose-de-Lima Church in Sainte-Rose in February last year immediately after the daycare incident.

More than a year after the bus crash incident at a Sainte-Rose daycare in which two children were killed and a half-dozen others were seriously injured, the driver at the wheel has been ordered by a judge to undergo a trial.

Former Société de transport de Laval driver Pierre Ny St-Amand faces multiple murder and aggravated assault charges related to the crash on Feb. 8, 2023.

The decision by Quebec Court judge François Landry on Thursday March 28 came after four days of testimony and legal arguments presented during a preliminary enquiry.
