A B.C. Supreme Court justice has awarded Telus $186,952 in damages after determining who was behind the wheel of a car which crashed into the company’s Houston property on June 29, 2017.

Although AJ William Fuller denied he was behind the wheel, Justice Jasmin Ahmad concluded that he was after finding the owner of the Mustang told police Fuller was in possession of the vehicle at the time.

Fuller must now pay for the damages.

The Mustang jumped the curb and went through the wall of the building, causing extensive damage.

Fuller had said that no one could prove he was driving the car at the time because there were no witnesses.

Ahmad found that both the driver and passenger left the scene.

Ahmad said the position of Telus that Fuller was driving was based on the balance of probabilities.

A police officer said that he knew Fuller had driven the car previously and that, combined with car owner Jacqueline Bowes saying he had possession of the car, was sufficient for Ahmad to determine Fuller was driving the Mustang.
