WINNIPEG – A man who was talking on his cellphone when he hit and injured two pedestrians has been convicted of dangerous driving.
Phone records and witness accounts were enough to persuade a judge to find Mahmud Ali guilty on two counts of dangerous driving causing bodily harm.
Court heard Ali was on the phone and went through a red light in June 2012.
As a result, his van was hit, collided with a curb and rolled, hitting two people and injuring them.
One pedestrian was badly hurt and was sent to hospital with a collapsed lung and five broken ribs, which may still require surgery.
Ali is to be sentenced in July.
