Man who was talking on cellphone found guilty of dangerous driving in Winnipeg

WINNIPEG - A man who was talking on his cellphone when he hit and injured two pedestrians in Winnipeg has been convicted of dangerous driving.

Phone records and witness accounts were enough to persuade a judge to find Mahmud Ali guilty on two counts of dangerous driving causing bodily harm.

Court heard Ali was on the phone and went through a red light in June 2012.

As a result, his van was hit, collided with a curb and rolled — hitting two people and injuring them.

One pedestrian was badly hurt and was sent to hospital with a collapsed lung and five broken ribs which may still require surgery.

Ali is to be sentenced in July.
