Crown has decided to lay more serious charges than those originally recommended against an RCMP officer involved in a fatal crash near Agassiz last year.

On July 12th Constable Jordan Braid was driving out to a call when he was involved in a collision with another car on Lougheed highway near Bodnar road.

According to an investigation by Abbotsford Police, Constable Braid did not have his emergency lights running and allegedly crossed into oncoming traffic.

The driver of the other vehicle, 20 year old Steve Genberg, died a few days later in hospital.

In March Abby police recommended charges of driving without due care, but on Friday Crown swore in charges of dangerous driving causing death and dangerous driving causing bodily harm.
