Psych Evaluation Extended for Man Charged in Fatal Highway Crash

It's going to take a bit longer to complete a psychiatric assessment for a Lethbridge man accused of causing a fatal crash on Highway 3 west of Coalhurst.

The case against Douglas Bagnall was briefly back in a Lethbridge courtroom on Thursday (Apr. 18). The 62-year old's psych evaluation, which will determine if he's fit to stand trial, has been going on since March 1, and has now been extended another 30 days.
 
Bagnall is facing charges of impaired driving after a man from the Piikani First Nation was killed in the crash last year.
 
Bagnall was re-arrested by Lethbridge Police in mid-January after failing to show up to court several times.
 
The case has been put over to May 22.
