Third trial ordered for York cop previously acquitted of dangerous driving causing death

A York police officer who killed an 18-year-old pedestrian will be going to trial for a third time on the charge of dangerous driving causing death.

Det.-Const. Remo Romano was on duty and driving an undercover pickup truck as part of a surveillance team when he hit Natasha Carla Abogado as she crossed St. Clair Ave. E. at around 8 p.m. in February 2014. He was travelling at least 109 kilometres per hour in a 60-km zone, trying to catch up to and assist other members of his team, according to the court of appeal’s decision.
