Less than a week after pleading guilty to two charges in connection with the crash that killed RCMP Cst. Sarah Beckett, Kenneth Jacob Fenton now faces three new charges in a separate case.
Fenton is charged with having been at the wheel of a pick-up truck that was involved in a high-speed crash on Goldstream Heights on May 22, 2016, just 7 weeks after the death of Const. Beckett.
Crews who responded to the incident say that the vehicle was airborne for 50-60 feet before hitting the ground.
Fenton and a female passenger were both injured.
First responders said neither occupant was wearing a seatbelt and that both had been lucky to survive.
Twenty-nine-year old Fenton faces charges filed Monday including impaired driving causing bodily harm and causing an accident resulting in bodily harm in connection with that crash.
The next court hearing is scheduled in Duncan for June 27th
He is also facing a civil suit filed by the female passenger in connection with the crash.
On Thursday, Fenton pleaded guilty to impaired driving causing death and dangerous driving causing death in the April 2016 crash that killed Beckett.
The 32-year old West Shore Mountie was an 11-year veteran of the force and left behind and a husband and two young children.
Fenton is due to a appear to fix a date for a sentencing hearing in that case on June 6.
