Court date set for man charged in Bertin’s death

A 24-year-old man charged in connection with a fatal hit-and-run crash last month

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

Brent Robert Cameron of Red Deer appeared in Red Deer Provincial Court, where his case was rescheduled for Nov. 23.

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 the hit-and-run incident on Taylor Drive Bridge in Red Deer on Oct. 6.

The accident occurred at about 2 a.m., just a couple of blocks away from the residence where Bertin lived with his brothers.

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

More than 200 family members and friends remembered Bertin during a funeral service Oct. 15 at the Evangelical Free Church in Erskine.
