car accident

OSKALOOSA, Kan. (AP) – A northeast Kansas man will go to prison for more than three years for a head-on crash that killed two people.

KAIR-AM reports (http://bit.ly/XLzV7A ) Brian Keefe, of Nortonville, was sentenced Friday in Jefferson County District Court.

Keefe pleaded guilty in December to two counts of involuntary manslaughter and two misdemeanor counts of driving under the influence.

The Kansas Highway Patrol said a car driven by Keefe crossed the center line of a road north of Oskaloosa and struck another vehicle on March 29, 2011. The crash killed 38-year-old Shawn Fraker, of Winchester, and 27-year-old Daniel Walker, of Oskaloosa.

Keefe was sentenced to three years and seven months on each of the manslaughter counts, to run concurrently. He’ll also spend three years on post-release supervision.
