Surrey woman charged in Pattullo pile-up

Police believe Jillian Bodner was impaired when she struck more than 30 oncoming cars on the Pattullo Bridge last August.

A Surrey woman has been charged in relation to a 30-car pile-up on the Pattullo Bridge last year.

At about 6 p.m. on Aug. 6, a woman was travelling north on the Pattullo Bridge when she crossed the centre line.

Police say she collided with more than 30 oncoming vehicles and continued driving before hitting a concrete barrier and coming to a stop.

Police announced Tuesday they have arrested and charged Jillian Bodner, 30, with dangerous driving, impaired driving and driving while over .08.

“We certainly are thankful that no one was hurt from these collisions,” said New Westminster Police Department’s media relations officer, Acting Sgt. Jeff Scott. “We want to remind drivers that if you’re going to drink, plan a safe ride home before going out.”
