A 42-year-old man convicted of impaired driving causing death and dangerous driving causing bodily harm in December has been sentenced to three years in prison, and a lifetime driving ban.
23-year-old Vanessa Usak was killed when Stephen Jenkins’ car crossed the line in July 2008. A passenger in Usak's car was also seriously injured. It happened on 144th Street and 108th Avenue in Surrey.
Jenkins has a record involving previous driving prohibitions and driving offenses.
On the night of the crash, he had a blood alcohol level above the legal limit. But Usak also was driving impaired.
Jenkins maintains he is innocent, and it was Usak who crashed into him.
