A 20-year-old man who hit and killed a delivery man in his 50s while driving a car while intoxicated was sentenced to probation.

The 12th Criminal Division of the Jeonju District Court (Chief Judge Young-ho Lee) announced today (22nd) that 28-year-old A, who was charged with dangerous driving and fatality under the Aggravated Punishment Act for Specific Crimes, was sentenced to 3 years in prison and 5 years of probation.

On January 31st, Mr. A was driving on a road in Geomsan-dong, Gimje-si while drunk at around 9:30 pm on January 31st, and after violating the central line, he collided head-on with an oncoming delivery motorcycle.

Motorcyclist B suffered serious head and limb injuries and was taken to the emergency room of a nearby hospital for treatment, but eventually died.

At that time, Mr. A's blood alcohol level was measured to be 0.135%, which is well above the license revocation value of 0.08%.

In addition, as a result of analyzing the accident recorder obtained from the accident vehicle by the police, it was found that Mr. A was driving the car at 120 km/h, which is more than twice the speed limit of 50 km/h.

The court explained the reason for the sentencing, saying, "The result of the crime is very serious and the possibility of condemnation is high," but "taking into account the fact that the accused agreed with the bereaved family and had no history of criminal punishment."
