âIt is baffling and incomprehensible that a professional driver could miss so many markers over such a long distance,â Judge Inez Cardinal said Friday, adding that she found Sidhuâs blameworthiness to be âhigh.â
In a makeshift courtroom at the Kerry Vickar Centre that was filled with family, friends and loved ones of both the bus crash victims and Sidhu, Cardinal announced her sentencing decision. Sidhu was joined in the room by around a dozen supporters, while several of the victimsâ family members were wearing Broncos jerseys and bunnyhugs, with the last names of their loved ones on the back.
