House arrest for driver who injured others

1672130787 Offender viciously assaulted fellow inmate in jail

A young Six Nations man who crashed a car almost two years ago after fleeing from the police, injuring himself and two others, was given a house arrest sentence last month.

Cody Lookinghorse, 24. was stopped by Six Nations Police on May 1, 2021 after he was seen going through a stop sign.

Police said he stopped his vehicle in response to their emergency equipment in the middle of an intersection and, after a pause, took off on Seneca Road.

After a short chase, Lookinghorse blew through a four-way stop at 3rd Line Road and hit a ditch. From a distance, police could see sparks fly.

The vehicle had hit a hydro pole and caused the transformer to spark.

All three people in the car were conscious and soon taken to hospital.

In court, Lookinghorse pleaded guilty to two counts of operating a vehicle and causing bodily harm, flight from police and driving with no insurance.

Justice Colette Good granted him a conditional sentence, placing him on nine months of restrictions, including house arrest during the first half of the sentence.

She also found him $6,250 for driving with no insurance.

Lookinghorse has become a popular motivational speaker and, last summer, organized a Gathering of Good Minds event on Six Nations to share some of his story and encourage and motivate youth to stay out of trouble.
