The impaired driving death trial of Michael Shaun Bomford got underway in Calgary on Monday.

The Crown claims the 54-year-old was three times over the legal limit when he crashed and rolled his Jeep Liberty on McKnight Boulevard on Oct. 18, 2016.

All three occupants were thrown from the vehicle.

Bomford's 17-year-old daughter Meghan died at the scene.

Bomford broke down in tears in court as off-duty nurse Jan Ginther, who ran to help the victims at the crash site, told the court how she found Meghan dead on the ground on McKnight Boulevard.

Appeal of Anne Norris verdict dismissed by Supreme Court of Canada

  Appeal of Anne Norris verdict dismissed by Supreme Court of Canada The Supreme Court of Canada has dismissed an appeal from Newfoundland and Labrador's attorney general to review the Anne Norris case. In 2018, a 12-person jury found Norris not criminally responsible in the death of Marcel Reardon, whom she admitted to killing by striking him repeatedly in the head with a hammer. The Crown had filed an application to the Court of Appeal of Newfoundland and Labrador earlier this year to request a new trial, but that appeal was rejected in a unanimous decision. The attorney general then filed an appeal to the country's top court.

"I pulled back Meghan's hoodie and what I saw indicated that nothing could be done for Meghan," Ginther said.

Fighting through her own tears, Ginther described how she then went on to help Meghan's friend, 16-year-old Kelsey Nelson.

According to Ginther, Nelson was bleeding from the head and having trouble breathing because she was choking on her own blood.

Ginther's husband Kurt, a former volunteer Innisfail firefighter, also testified on Monday that he rushed to help the accused at the crash scene.

At first, he said Bomford was unresponsive and he could not detect a pulse.

  Parents, estate of Grand Manan fisherman killed in New Year's crash sue drunk driver Parents, estate of Grand Manan fisherman killed in New Year's crash sue drunk driverDaniel Greene, 23, was sentenced last month to four years in prison after being found guilty of impaired driving causing the death of Derek Patey, and being in a fatal motor vehicle crash while having a blood-alcohol level above the legal limit.

When he returned a short while later, Kurt Ginther said Bomford had started breathing and "he was lying in a ball, on his side, crying."

Under cross-examination from defence lawyer James Wyman, Kurt Ginther was asked if he smelled alcohol on Bomford's breath, to which he replied that he did not.

Both Kurt and Jan Ginther told the court that when paramedics arrived on-scene, they declared Bomford dead, despite the couple's insistence he was still alive.

"No, he's not dead," Kurt Ginther said he told EMS when he saw a tarp had been placed over Bomford.

According to Kurt Ginther, the tarp covered Bomford for at least five to 10 minutes before someone saw him moving.

Other Crown witnesses testified on Monday that they saw the Jeep Liberty driving erratically on McKnight Boulevard just before it crashed, swerving in and out of traffic and travelling at a high rate of speed.

The speed limit on McKnight is 80 kilometres an hour. The Crown alleges the Jeep was going at least 112 km/h.

Bomford has pleaded not guilty to all six charges in connection with the crash.

The judge-only trial is scheduled for seven days.
