An Edmonton police officer has been found not guilty of causing a car crash that killed an 84-year-old woman. A judge has ruled there was reasonable doubt in the case against Const. Chris Luimes (loom-iss) and acquitted him of dangerous driving causing death. Crown prosecutor Jonathan Hak says it was a difficult case. (Court heard Luimes was conducting surveillance, and racing to catch up with a suspected gold thief, when he went through an intersection at nearly twice the speed limit. Anne Walden was making a left-hand turn when her car was struck. She died at the scene.)
