The biggest jackass award goes to the Mississauga tourist who preferred to fetch food at Tim Horton, rather than rescue his wife who had the sternum broken in a car crash with a concrete wall.
I’m not kidding. A motorist actually abandoned his seriously injured spouse after a collision to fetch himself food from a Tim Hortons in Montreal. The Mississauga, Ontario, jackass resident travel with his wife to Quebec City in March 2017.
He rented a vehicle and that night he drank alcohol. And the biggest jackass award goes to… Of course, he lost control of the car and hit a concrete wall.
As it often happens, the drunk driver, a 26-year-old man was not seriously injured, unlike his wife who had the broken sternum on impact. That didn’t not seem to worry the idiot, who abandoned his to cross the street, buy food at nearby Tim Hortons and then leave.
He pleaded on February 18 at the opening of his trial. He expressed his remorse for his blatant lack of judgment. No kidding! Too little too late as far as I’m concerned. First charged with impaired driving causing injury, Smith eventually pleaded guilty to failing to assist an injured person in an accident he caused.
At the suggestion of the lawyers, he was given 90 days of intermittent jail time, probation and 240 hours of community service. Personally, I don’t think it’s nearly enough punishment.
The worst part of this story is that his wife forgave him. Why do I suddenly think that it’s not the first time he’s treated her badly. Why do I feel like there should check her medical history for mysterious injuries?
Stop excusing people for being shitty human being. Let’s start asking for more.
