* Rainbow Concrete was convicted Tuesday of criminal negligence causing death in connection with the 2017 death of Rhéal Dionne.
Dionne was driving a dump truck at Rainbow’s Maley Drive location Feb. 15, 2017, when part of an archway on the property collapsed on top of the truck cab, killing him.
Rainbow Concrete and owner Boris Naneff were charged last summer using the Westray Bill. The law allows the owners of companies to face criminal charges when investigators believe they have not taken “reasonable steps to prevent bodily harm to that person, or any other person, arising from that work or task.”
In Sudbury court Tuesday, the charge against Naneff was dropped, while the company pleaded guilty, received a $1,000 fine and was given 18 months to pay Dionne’s family $150,000, on top of $50,000 it has already provided them.
