A driver has been sentenced to probation in Turkey for a car accident in which four people died while driving a rental car without an international driver's license while traveling abroad with a married couple.

Today (22nd), Ulsan District Court Detective 6 (Judge Kim Do-yeong) sentenced a person in his 60s, who was charged with violating the Traffic Accident Handling Special Act, to 1 year and 6 months in prison and 3 years of probation.

In May 2018, Mr. A was handed over to trial on charges of causing a fatal accident while driving a rental car without an international driver's license on a highway in a resort area in Turkey.

In the accident, 4 of the 8 people in the car, including driver A, died, and the remaining 4 suffered minor injuries.

These were all Koreans in their 60s and 70s, who were traveling together as a couple at the time, and in the accident, all the wives sitting in the back of the car died.
