Ontario firefighter acquitted in deadly collision

Fire truck driven by Firefighter Jarrett Johns accused of running red light

The Toronto Star

MISSISSAUGA, Ontario — Firefighter Jarrett Johns was en route to another collision that grey afternoon in March 2011. Instead, the fire truck he was driving slammed into Kimberley Schulz's black Mazda, instantly killing the Mississauga mother and wife.

After an emotional trial that hinged on the colour of a traffic light, the Toronto man was acquitted of running a red light in a Mississauga court Monday — a ruling Schulz's devastated family called "completely and utterly unacceptable."
