The Saskatoon woman who admitted to impaired driving in a highway crash that killed a couple and their two young children received her sentence Wednesday
Catherine McKay pleaded guilty last month to four counts of impaired driving causing death and was sentenced in Saskatoon to 10 years in prison minus time served.
In early January of this year, McKay was driving an SUV that struck a vehicle at Highway 11 and Wanuskewin Road containing 34 year old Jordan Van de Vorst, his 33 year old wife Chanda and their two kids—5 year old Kamryn and two year old Miguire. The adults were killed at the scene with the children dying in hospital shortly after.
Before the sentence was handed down, several members of the Van de Vorst family read victim impact statements talking about how their lives have been torn apart since that fateful Janaury evening.
