Seven people were seriously injured, one of whom remained in hospital on Friday. Two dogs were also hit, one of them fatal.

Gordon's mother apologized for her behavior, and her family said she was unwell.

The family, which said Gordon suffered from paranoia, delusions and severe anxiety, said he was being treated at Abbotsford Hospital on December 19, but was released. A few hours later the pedestrian was hit.

His family said he should not be released.

Fraser Health said that he could not speak with certain cases for reasons of privacy.

However, it claimed an attempt was made to reach the family when Gordon was released while his mother said no one had called.

The police are still looking for dashboard videos to assist with the investigation and to determine a more precise time where the truck will be on the night of December 19

Gordon will return to court on January 3.
