Impaired driver gets 40 months in jail for fatal North Vancouver crash in 2021
A drunk driver who killed a community migrant-rights worker and left her husband with life-threatening injuries two years ago has been sentenced to 40 months in jail.
Marcelina Perdido Agulay had just picked up her husband, Leonilo, from work and was driving west on Low Level Road in North Vancouver late on March 2, 2021, when their car was hit head-on by an impaired driver after his car crossed the centre line near the Neptune-Cargill overpass.
Both vehicles were demolished and the drunk driver’s car burst into flames, but he was pulled out before the fire started.
Marcelina died and Leonilo was left in critical condition. Agulay left behind a son and two grandchildren and extended family mourning their “Auntie Lina.”
On Friday, Andre Matthew Lukat pleaded guilty to impaired driving causing death and impaired driving causing harm and was sentenced to three years, four months in prison. He was also handed a seven-year driving ban.
