Man sentenced to jail for deadly collision
A Brooks man is serving an 18-month jail sentence after pleading guilty to charges arising from a collision that killed a co-worker from Rocky Mountain House.
Clinton Lattery, 27, died of injuries after the welding truck in which he had been riding collided with a logging truck near Whitecourt on the evening of Nov. 14, 2012.
Welding truck driver Ryan Douglas Florence, 31, was scheduled to stand trial in Stony Plain earlier this month on a charge of impaired driving causing death.
The trial was cancelled in June when Florence admitted his guilt in the fatal collision.
He was then sentenced in Stony Plain provincial court to 18 months in jail, followed by 18 months probation. His driver’s licence is to be suspended for three years following his release from custody.
