TUCSON, Ariz. — A Tucson man who killed his passenger and injured another
woman in a fatal alcohol-related crash in January 2012 has been sentenced to 15
years in prison.
Pima County prosecutors say 42-year-old Daniel Douriet was sentenced Monday.
He pleaded guilty to manslaughter and aggravated assault in December and was
facing up to a 36-year prison term.
Authorities say Douriet lost control of his car while driving north on East
Benson Highway, hit a road sign, a light pole and a wire fence before veering
back onto the road and into oncoming traffic.
Douriet’s 48-year-old female passenger was killed and the 26-year-old woman
driving another car suffered serious injuries.
The Arizona Daily Star says Douriet sustained head
injuries and was booked into jail after spending several days in the hospital.
