A semi-truck driver has been sentenced to prison time following a traffic incident that resulted in the death of three.
On May 3, 2015, three teen residents from Saskatchewan were killed when a semi-truck, driven by Normand Lavoie, rear ended their car in a construction zone. According to an article published by the National Post, the three passengers, ranging from 14-17 years of age, were all killed upon impact.
Lavoie was sentenced to 3 years for each of the deaths, as well as a year for the serious injury of a flag person, all of which will be served concurrently. Following his release from prison, he will be unable to drive for five years.
