A Lethbridge man, who’s accused in a collision that killed a man from the Piikani First Nation, will be going to trial on three charges including impaired driving causing death.

A preliminary hearing took place Friday morning (Sep. 13), which determined there is enough evidence for Douglas Bagnall, 62, to proceed to trial.

Piikani council member Barney Provost, 43, was killed in the crash last year along Highway 3, west of Coalhurst.

Several of Provost’s family members were in the courtroom on Friday (Sep. 13). His brother, Riel, says it’s been a difficult process, but they find some strength together. “We miss my brother every day and his children miss him every day. It’s a cut that’s so deep that it’ll never really be repaired. When you use the word closure, it’s hard for me even to use it. But, I mean, the things we hear in this courtroom right now really do matter.”

Bagnall will be back in Lethbridge Court of Queen’s Bench for his arraignment on Nov. 25.

I started my radio career in 2015, shortly after graduating from Lethbridge College. I have a very strong passion for local news.

Proudly born in 1994, I grew up most of my life in Sylvan Lake, AB and I’ve lived in the Lethbridge since 2012. I’m a below average golfer on a good day, I take as many hiking trips to Waterton as possible in the summer and I love my two cats, Outlaw and Jynx, and my dog, Maverick, more than most people I know.

I look forward to providing accurate, timely news coverage in southern Alberta for plenty of years to come!
