A man has been acquitted of dangerous driving in Toronto after a two-year investigation and trial. Gideon Fekre told court that he became distracted when a water bottle fell to the floor of his vehicle and in a reflex action he looked down at it. His car mounted a sidewalk and killed Kristy Hodgson, 31, who was walking her dogs at the time. A judge decided that although it is not reasonable to pick up a bottle while driving, it was more of a momentary lapse of judgment and did not constitute dangerous driving.
