Almost 50 of Al Joyce’s family and friends watched Sarah Standen enter guilty pleas in the Superior Court of Justice in Owen Sound Tuesday.Standen failed to stop at a stop sign and broadsided a sport utility vehicle, killing Joyce, 53, of Georgian Bluffs, at the intersection of Zion Church Road and Grey Road 17 about 1:05 a.m. on Nov. 18, 2017.She was impaired by alcohol, had a prior drinking and driving conviction and her licence was under suspension for unpaid fines at the time of the fatal collision, Grey County Crown attorney Peter Leger told the court.The Wiarton resident, who was 32 at the time of the crash, admitted all of the facts read into the record and pleaded guilty to impaired driving causing the death of Joyce, and to impaired driving causing bodily harm to James Hubick.Justice John Sproat convicted her and put over sentencing submissions and victim impact statements to June 26, when a presentence report concerning Standen’s background, which the judge ordered, will be presented at a sentencing hearing.Standen remains out of custody. Her parents attended the court hearing.All involved in the crash that night had been at a party at the Wiarton Legion, Leger told the court.Standen was driving south in a 2007 Dodge Dakota pickup truck belonging to Hubick, who was a passenger in his own truck that night. He suffered a head injury, for which he received four staples to close a laceration.Standen didn’t stop at the stop sign at Grey Road 17 and slammed into the driver’s side of a 2014 Ford Edge sport utility vehicle, driven by Kelli Joyce, who was the designated driver to bring her parents, Al and Lois Joyce, home.Her mother was a front passenger while her father was seated behind the driver’s seat. Their vehicle ended up on its roof. Al Joyce died at the scene. Mother and daughter suffered injuries but were able to get out of the SUV themselves.Police found Standen with a broken left foot, seated beside the truck she had been driving. Her breath smelled strongly of alcohol and she admitted she’d been drinking at the Wiarton Legion.“It was evident she was intoxicated due to alcohol consumption,” Leger said. She was taken to Wiarton hospital by ambulance. She was arrested for impaired driving causing death.She told police “Sorry, I didn’t mean to do it.” When read a demand for her breath, she replied “Oh my God, oh my God. My friend just asked me to drive his truck home. Oh my God. Are you kidding me?”But breath readings taken about three hours after the crash did not exceed the legal limit under the Criminal Code. Standen was treated for a fractured left ankle and was released unconditionally, Leger said.Later, experts at the Centre of Forensic Sciences worked out her blood-alcohol concentration at the time of the crash and concluded Standen was impaired at that time. She was rearrested Feb. 19, 2018.She spoke to duty counsel before she admitted in a recorded statement to police that she drank two Twisted Tea drinks prior to driving and that she admitted she had a “buzz going” at the time of the collision.Some of Joyce’s family spoke with a reporter after the hearing but declined comment for this story.
