A mother and fiancé is the latest victim of alleged drinking and driving in the province.
Adrienne Daigneault was in the passenger seat of a Kia Spectra stopped at a red light on Albert Street on Saturday. A Dodge Journey slammed into the back of the car, killing Daigneault.
Police said the driver was impaired and driving at excessive speeds.
Diagneault was supposed to get married next August and had planned to go wedding dress shopping over the Thanksgiving long weekend.
She leaves behind a 9-year-old son Aiden.
Family friend Dennis Smythe started the Go Fund Me page to raise money for Daigneault’s son and fiancé.
“She was an amazing woman and amazing mother. I see nothing but smiles in her little boy,” said Smythe. “It’s been pretty devastating.”
As of Wednesday morning $3,821 has been raised. The money will support the family by paying rent, bills and groceries.
“Basically we’re trying to help [Daigneault’s fiancé] out financially so that’s not something else he has to worry about, he can just take the time to mourn the loss.”
The driver of the Dodge, 28-year-old Brendan Sugar, was charged with impaired driving causing death, exceed .08 causing death, exceed .08 causing bodily harm and impaired driving causing bodily harm.
He will remain in custody until his bail hearing Friday morning.
