The driver of a car that struck and killed a young Winnipeg woman working as a highway flagger has been ordered to stand trial on a charge of dangerous driving causing death.

The driver of a car that struck and killed a young Winnipeg woman working as a highway flagger has been ordered to stand trial on a charge of dangerous driving causing death.

Mitchell Blostein, 69, finished his preliminary hearing on Tuesday with a judge ruling there is sufficient evidence to proceed with the case against him.

A court-ordered ban prevents specific details of the hearing from being published.

Brittany Lynn Murray, 21, died in October 2010 after she was struck by a 1996 Chrysler Intrepid in a construction zone on Highway 207, between Highway 15 and the Trans-Canada Highway.

Murray was part of a highway crew with Mulder Construction.

She was rushed to hospital but died of her injuries.
