'A tragic accident': Ottawa truck driver found not guilty in 2016 death of cyclist

By Gary Dimmock, Ottawa Citizen, February 5, 2019

Not every deadly crash is a crime, and the one that claimed the life of cyclist Nusrat Jahan in 2016 has been ruled a tragic accident.

On Tuesday, Ontario Court Justice David Berg acquitted Steven Conley, the driver of a dump truck who struck and killed Jahan at the busy intersection of Laurier Avenue and Lyon Street during the morning rush hour on Sept. 1, 2016.

Conley was negotiating a right turn at the intersection, and while he didn’t signal, he couldn’t see the young cyclist in his blind spot.
