Cameron due back in court in Bertin case

A 24-year-old man charged in connection with a fatal hit-and-run vehicle crash last month that killed a former Botha-area teenager

A 24-year-old man charged in connection with a fatal hit-and-run vehicle crash last month that killed a former Botha-area teenager is set to return to court next month to enter a plea.

Brent Robert Cameron of Red Deer appeared in Red Deer Provincial Court on Nov. 2, when he was scheduled to enter a plea. He’s now slated to appear in court Dec. 19.

Cameron faces charges of failing to stop and render assistance at the scene of a collision, and for public mischief.

Paul Gabriel Bertin, 18, was killed in an apparent hit-and-run on Taylor Drive Bridge in Red Deer on Oct. 6. He was hit shortly after 2 a.m., just a couple of blocks from the home where he lived with his brothers.

Later that day, RCMP located the suspect vehicle and arrested Cameron.
