THUNDER BAY -- The 28-year-old man charged after a fatal highway crash in March could spend a year-and-a-half in jail before his case ever reaches trial.

George Joseph, the attorney for Tyler Boily, estimates that the case of impaired driving causing death could take 18-months to work its way through the court system.

Boily faces the impaired driving charge along with dangerous driving causing death and criminal negligence causing death after allegedly being involved in a crash on Highway 61 on March 22. The early morning collision led to the death of Daniel Brooks and Michelle Parker.

It is alleged a pickup truck driven by Boily travelling south on Highway 61 between Harbour Expressway and Arthur Street struck a guardrail, lost control and collided with the vehicle containing the victims.

Brooks was pronounced dead at the scene and Parker was taken to hospital where she later succumbed to her injuries.

Boily sought bail at a previous court appearance on April 28. That bail was denied. 

Joseph says he has no plans to re-apply for bail, despite the length of time it may take for the charges to work their way through the courts.

Boily suffered non-life threatening injuries.

His next court appearance is scheduled for June 24.
