Kensington Man Serves Jail Time for Drunk Driving

A 27-year-old Kensington man was sentenced to eight months in prison and 18 months probation after driving drunk and injuring a friend. He’s also not allowed to drive for two years.

The incident occurred last June when the man was driving 160 km/h in an 80 km/h zone and his car went off the road and into a ditch. His friend was tossed 10 metres from the car and suffered serious injuries. The driver’s blood alcohol level was found to be twice the legal limit.
