A mistrial has been declared in the trial of a York Regional Police officer, charged in the death of a teenager in 2014.
Remo Romano was on duty when he struck 18 year old Carla Abogado just moments after she had steeped off a bus on St. Clair Avenue East near Warden on the night of February 12th, 2014.
Const. Romano was driving an unmarked cruiser at the time, and was allegedly travelling at over 100 km/h in a 60 km zone.
He was later charged with dangerous driving causing death.
The jury in the trial began deliberations Tuesday, but on Wednesday they told the judge that they had reached a permanent impasse.
The judge then declared a mistrial, discharged the jurors and thanked them for their service.
Prosecutors will take two weeks to decide whether they’ll retry the case.
