The trial of Conshohocken resident Leah Cielo took place this week in Norristown and her fate is now in the jury’s hands. She was charged with homicide by vehicle, and related charges, in connection with January 31st death of 80-year-old Bruce Collins. Collins was crossing Fayette Street at 4th Avenue when Cielo’s vehicle struck him in the crosswalk.
The jury will have to determine if Cielo was negligent by driving with an obstructed windshield. Cielo’s defense claimed that the windshield fogged up after she was driving and it was an unfortunate accident.
