Toronto, Ontario – February 14, 2019 – Chet Bernard Chisholm, a 45-year-old motor vehicle inspector in Nova Scotia is facing a series of charges following a fatal collision last year that involved two vehicles.
The 49-year-old man that was driving the vehicle that Chisholm inspected was killed and two other people were injured during the collision.
Chisholm has been charged with criminal negligence causing death, two counts of criminal negligence causing bodily harm and breach of trust.
A spokesperson for the RCMP Jennifer Clarke announced that they were investigating the other vehicles he was inspecting and realized that the inspections were being completed but not properly.
“…We’ve laid charges and fairly serious charges at that,” said Clarke.
The Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal told the Chronicle Herald that Chisholm had been their employee and that the improper inspections were not done as part of his duties for the department.
Police are reaching out to these motorists that have had their vehicles inspected by Chisholm in the past to recommend that they get their inspections redone.
