A man who was found guilty in a fatal crash on Regina’s Ring Road has been sentenced.
On Thursday, a judge sentenced the man to 80 days in custody and 40 days of house arrest, followed by 19 months of probation and a 32-month driving ban.
The man, who was 16 at the time of the crash, was found guilty earlier this year of dangerous driving causing death and two counts of dangerous driving causing bodily harm.
In March 2015, a car driven by the teen crossed the centre ditch of the Ring Road and struck another vehicle, killing 49-year-old Saeed Warraich. The trial heard the teen was driving at a high rate of speed when he removed the key from the ignition and lost control of the vehicle.
Warraich, who emigrated from Pakistan to Canada seven years ago, left behind a wife and two young sons.
Outside court, Warraich's widow, Sibgha Saeed, said 16 is too young for a person to hold a driver's licence. She noted that in her home country of Pakistan, people must be 18 or older to legally drive a vehicle.
