Bail has been granted to a man accused of impaired driving causing death for a collision in Minnedosa earlier this month.

On Friday, Christopher Palaschuk, 39, appeared in Brandon provincial court, where a Crown attorney consented to his release.

Palaschuk is to live in Calgary on a variety of conditions while pending on charges that stem from the deadly crash on Aug. 4 near the site of Rockin’ the Fields of Minnedosa. That was one of the nights of the music festival.

RCMP reported that a vehicle headed south on Provincial Road 262, commonly known as beach road, hit a 25-year-old man and a 23-year-old woman who were walking on the shoulder of the highway around 3 a.m.

The man and woman have since been identified as brother and sister, Shawn and Jennifer Cooper, of Minnedosa.

The vehicle then kept going and hit a 44-year-old Winnipeg man, police said.

Shawn died in hospital, while his sister was treated for injuries and later released from hospital.

The Winnipeg man was treated for injuries at the scene and released.

Many of the charges against Palaschuk relate to the death of Shawn and the injuries to Jennifer.

They include impaired driving causing bodily harm, impaired driving causing death, and failing to stop at the scene of an accident.

The charges against Palaschuk also include an allegation of domestic assault from the same date.

Palaschuk’s next court date is set for early next month in Minnedosa, although he may not have to appear that day.
