Costco crash driver Ruth Burger appealing convictions
The London woman who drove her car backwards into the front doors of a big box store, killing two children and injuring their mother and sister, is appealing her four convictions for dangerous driving.
Ruth Burger, 66, is asking the Ontario Court of Appeal to quash her convictions and acquit her of all charges or order a new trial.
The lawyer for the family of the little girls said they were “shocked and disappointed” that Burger has filed an appeal.
“They said they’d come to a place of forgiveness,” said London lawyer Maia Bent.
“And they can’t help but question the truth of Ms. Burger’s expressions of remorse,” added Bent.
