LARGO, Fla. (AP) - A St. Petersburg man has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for a crash that left two men dead.
A Pinellas County judge sentenced 27-year-old Daniel Barga on Monday after he pleaded guilty to two counts of vehicular homicide, two counts of driving without a valid license, two counts of possession of a controlled substance and one count of driving under the influence. Barga will also lose his driving privileges for the rest of his life.
Prosecutors say Barga was high on prescription pain medication and was traveling about 70 mph in a 45 mph construction zone when he slammed into several cars in June. The eight-car pileup led to the deaths of 22-year-old Jancarlos Schaffer and 23-year-old Richard Kelly.
