The London man charged with impaired driving in a horrific crash that claimed the life of an 18 year old Western University student is expected to plead guilty Wednesday.
25-year-old Jared DeJong has been out on bail since a day after the October 7th collision which claimed the life of 18-year-old Andrea Christidis (pictured).
The first year student was hit after an out of control minivan jumped the curb while she was walking back to her nearby dorm from a late night study lab.
DeJong is charged with impaired driving causing death, and dangerous driving causing death.
Lawyer Jim Dean confirmed to AM980 in January that DeJong plans to enter a guilty plea during Wednesday’s court appearance.
Christidis died in hospital two days after the collision which occurred just days before the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.
She had recently graduated from Leaside highschool in Toronto with an honours diploma in both French and English, according to her family. She had aspirations of pursuing her dreams of a career in the medical field, they said
