Uptown Man Found Guilty In Highway Death

A King Street East man is looking at a minimum of 3 years in prison after being found guilty of impaired driving causing death.

30 year old Jordan Sullivan was charged after a two car collision along the Airport Arterial in March of 2011 which killed 50 year old Sheila Bayers. Her car was stopped or almost stopped when Sullivan, who was going the wrong way, slammed into her. 

The court heard he had both marijuana and alcohol in his system and was over the legal limit. The force of impact was such that Bayers was ejected from her car even though she had her seatbelt on. Her car was driven back more than 14 metres.
