A drunk driver returning from a wedding party has been found guilty of a crash that killed the three passengers in his car, including the man who had just gotten married, a spokeswoman for a court in the central Russian Penza Region said on Thursday.

 

Sergei Lyagin “failed to maintain safe speed, lost control of the vehicle, hit a steel bridge barrier and his car overturned.” All three passengers in the car died, included the just-married groom.

 

The driver pleaded not guilty and refused to testify in court. But eyewitnesses identified Lyagin as the man behind the wheel.

 

Lyagin was convicted of the manslaughter of three people caused by ignoring traffic rules and sentenced to 6.5 years in prison.
