So Alain Gaudreault walked into a Montreal police station and confessed to mowing down and killing cyclist Robert Brisson with his truck.
Over half-a-decade later, he has now been charged with failure to stop at the scene of an accident and police are waiting to see what he says about the accident.
Brisson's widow and mother to his 16-year-old and 13-year-old children Sylvie Guilbault,was shocked to hear the news she has been waiting for every day since Oct. 20, 2006.
She told the Montreal Gazette: "For sure, we'd like to learn what really happened, what the circumstances were. When we don't know, it's left to our imaginations."
