Five-year sentence for Calgary driver in fatal crash

Man sent to prison for 2008 incident that killed Calgary woman and injured two others.

Five years in prison was the sentence handed down to a Calgary man today, after he pleaded guilty in the 2008 drunk driving death of a Calgary woman, and the injury of two others.

Darren Coupal was sentenced Wednesday in a Calgary court for the collision two years ago in Bridlewood when he struck and killed Linda Davey while driving home from a neighbourhood pub.

He also injured her 15-year-old son and a family friend in the 2008 incident. Coupal also received a 10-year driving prohibition and must register his DNA.

Coupal pleaded guilty last fall to five charges related to the crash, including impaired driving causing death and two counts of impaired driving causing bodily harm.
