More questions than answers in trial over Guelph area cyclist’s death

More questions than answers in trial over Guelph area  cyclist’s death


On November 7, 2013, CTV news reported  that a man named Gordon Krofchick, 42, of Ariss, was killed in a hit and run by a motorist on Wellington County Road 7 just south of  County Road 51 between 10 and 11:30 pm.  


A passerby called 911 around 7:30 am.  A Guelph woman, named Anna Wilson, was charged in connection with the hit and run.  According to CTV news, an auto shop reported a car with damage to the police.

This is very tragic story, to say the least.
What is also tragic is the reporting of the trial by the Guelph Mercury. (July 18, 2014)  It gave no information except to say that the charges were stayed.


According to the Mercury, the brother of the victim, Gordon Krofchik said, “We don’t feel like justice is being done.”


This story, therefore, raises more questions than the answers it provides.


Why were the charges dropped? A cyclist was killed, a person hit him and left the scene, and all the information we have is that the charges were dropped.  A precious human life was lost in an apparent hit and run and no further information was provided.

I think the public has a right to know more details, details, please….
