On July 3rd, 2015, thirty-three year old Michelle Maisey was socializing at a licenced establishment in the Town of Milton. During this time she consumed several alcoholic beverages, to the point where she became intoxicated.
A taxi was called, and upon its arrival the driver was paid by a third party to drive her home. However, instead of entering the taxi, Maisey drove away in her own vehicle. At approximately 9:08 pm, Maisey was southbound on Tremaine Road when she struck Chris Harper, a fifty year old high school teacher who had been cycling southbound. Harper sustained severe injuries and was later pronounced dead at the scene. Maisey fled the scene, only to return several minutes later. However, upon her return, she slowed but did not stop her vehicle, again driving away. An eyewitness to the collision obtained Maisey’s licence plate, called 911, then stopped to render assistance to Chris Harper. Maisey was located and arrested by police approximately thirty minutes after the collision. Breath testing at the police station revealed that the concentration of alcohol in Maisey’s blood was one hundred eighty milligrams of alcohol in one hundred millilitres of blood. As well, the subsequent investigation revealed that Maisey had sent several text messages on her cellular telephone while driving, prior to and at the time of the collision.
On November 12th, 2015, Michelle Maisey pleaded guilty to impaired driving causing death and failure to stop at the scene of accident involving death. On December 15th, she was sentenced to five years and two months of custody.
