Emergency personnel at the head-on collision on the Trans-Canada Highway.

The trucker charged with Monday night’s fatal collision in Headingley was released on bail earlier today.

Randolf Enns, 33, was released on $2,000 bail and conditions which allow him to return to his home in British Columbia.

Enns, previously identified as an Edmonton trucker, told the court his home is in Ladysmith, B.C. The trucking firm he worked for is based in Edmonton.

Enns is charged with dangerous driving causing death and resisting police following the head-on collision Monday night on the Trans-Canada Highway that killed Derek Bossuyt, 21, of Winnipeg.

Enns was taken into custody after the westbound semi-trailer he was driving crossed the centre line and struck the pick-up driven by Bossuyt.

Enns’ trucking career has been suspended. One of the conditions of his release is that he is not allowed to drive.

The other conditions include: he is not allowed to move from his address in Ladysmith without first obtaining permission from the court; and he is prohibited from possessing or drinking any alcohol.

Enns’ next court date is August 26, at 1 p.m.
