A 72-year-old Kelowna woman has been found guilty of driving without due care and attention relating to a November 2014 incident, where she fatally drove over a pedestrian.

Judge Ellen Burdett found Sharon Marlene Scott, a Daily Courier contract delivery driver,  guilty of the Motor Vehicle Act charge Friday. Sentencing is scheduled for Feb. 11. Criminal charges she faced relating to the incident were dropped last March.

Scott ran over Julie Gillespie, 83, in the early hours of Nov. 23 2014 in the alley between the Courier and the McWilliams Centre located at 580 Doyle Avenue.

Gillespie, a longtime Legion volunteer,  was walking home after a night out.
