Granada Driver who killed three in pardoned

A MAN sentenced to three years and three months in prison for the death of three youths in a traffic accident in Granada in 2008 has been pardoned.

The Spanish Cabinet Meeting has granted a partial acquittal to the man who was travelling at more than 120kph on a road where the limit was 40kph. He was accompanied by three friends and lost control of the vehicle on a bend, crashing into a parked rubbish truck. The three passengers died and he was seriously injured.

He has now been sentenced to two years in prison, 15 days of community work and a fine of €2 per day for a year as long as he does not commit a criminal act in the next four years.

As he doesn’t have a criminal record, he will not see the inside of a cell.

The victims’ families are appalled at the government’s decision
