A truck driver who was the subject of national attention following a near head-on crash north of Nipigon last January has been hit with a hefty fine.
This dashboard camera video went viral last winter after a transport driver on Highway 11 was forced into the guardrails to avoid colliding with another transport that was passing a snow plow. The popularity of the video eventually led to it being featured on the comedy show Tosh.O.
After examining the video, police laid charges against 31-year-old Akmal Hayat of Milton, Ont.
Hayat has been fined $2,500 after pleading guilty to careless driving.
Two other charges, failing to remain and failing to report an accident, were withdrawn.
