CALGARY – A man who admitted to impaired driving causing death in a fatal head-on collision two years ago has been sentenced to six years behind bars.

Kelly James York was three times the legal limit when his vehicle crossed over the centre line on 17 Avenue S.E. near Stoney Trail in the early morning hours of July 15th, 2012.

His minivan collided with an eastbound motorcycle, killing 45-year-old Chestermere father Tony Harrison.

On Friday, a judge handed down York’s sentence.

In addition to six years in jail, he’ll also be subject to a 10-year driving ban once released.
