BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) - A suburban Lake Worth man has been sentenced to eight years in prison for a drunken driving crash that left two people dead.

The Palm Post reports that the sentencing came Thursday after 27-year-old Subhan Khurram previously pleaded guilty to two counts of DUI manslaughter.

He had faced up to 10 years in prison. Khurram was driving the wrong way on Interstate 95 in Boca Raton in July 2015 when he crashed head-on into a car occupied by Frans McCatty and Ricardo Fletcher.

They died at the scene, while Khurran was hospitalized. Khurram’s blood-alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit following the crash.
