A 57-year-old London man charged in connection with a crash that took the life of a man and his young niece has been sentenced in the case.
Leszek Urbaniak was sentenced on Thursday in connection with the crash near Chatham on May 10th, 2014. The investigation showed a tractor trailer crossed the median of the 401 and entered the highway’s eastbound lanes, hitting a car. The 35-year-old driver, Marc Lafontaine, and his 13-year-old niece Alyssa Smulders both of Windsor, were pronounced dead at the scene.
As a result of the investigation, Urbaniak was charged with two counts of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing death.
On Thursday, he was sentenced to pay a $2,000 fine and was also handed two driving bans. The first ban stipulates he must not drive a commercial vehicle for two years while the second will keep him from driving a personal vehicle for one year.
