Travis Dustin Fox, born in 1995, appeared in Vernon Provincial Court Friday morning where he pleaded guilty to two counts of dangerous driving causing death, two counts of impaired driving causing death, and two counts of impaired driving causing bodily harm, the spokesperson said.
A man has been given a three-year jail sentence after pleading guilty to a drinking and driving crash that led to the death of two young women.
Travis Dustin Fox of Armstrong, 22, was handed the sentence after pleading guilty in B.C. Provincial Court in Vernon earlier Friday to charges connected to the March 6th, 2016 crash.
A court clerk says that Fox was given 18 months for dangerous driving causing death, 36 months for impaired driving causing death and 12 months for impaired driving causing bodily harm.
The sentences will be served concurrently.
An Armstrong man has pleaded guilty to six charges in connection with a vehicle crash in Vernon two years ago that killed two of his friends, according to a spokesperson for the B.C. Prosecution Service.
Fox was behind the wheel on March 6, 2016 when his pickup rolled off Highway 6 near Waddington Drive, killing passengers Carlee De Boer, 20, of Grindrod and Paige Whitelaw, 20, of Ladysmith. The two had been attending Okanagan College in Kelowna.
Police said there were five people in the truck at the time of the crash.
A provincial court judge is expected to impose sentence on Fox this afternoon, the spokesperson said.
