The juror who witnessed the incident told his fellow members of the jury that he had driven by the scene of the incident, when Hibbert was arrested.

Once that news got to B.C. Supreme Court Justice Dev Dley, a mistrial was declared.

Hibbert’s new trial is slated to get underway on May 11.

His charge of dangerous driving stems from a collision that occurred in Kamloops on May 26, 2019.
