The driver, 42-year-old Joseph Warren, was charged with impaired driving causing bodily harm and possession of a controlled substance (marijuana) after he blew more than three times over the legal limit in a breathalyzer test. His charge has since been upgraded to impaired driving causing death.
At around 6:00 PM on Wednesday, the jogger was running eastbound on the north side of Charlton Avenue where Charlton turns into Wentworth, when a 2006 Toyota Corolla struck her while she was crossing the road. Emergency Services took her to hospital with life-threatening injuries.
