Cory Sater to be sentenced for deadly hit and run
Charlene Reaveley, 30, and Lorraine Cruz, 26, were killed instantly on Lougheed Highway in Feb. 2011
A man convicted of killing two women in a 2011 hit-and-run crash in Coquitlam, B.C., is expected to be sentenced in B.C. Supreme Court this week.
In January, Cory Sater was found guilty of impaired driving causing death and dangerous driving causing death.
The judge determined that Sater had consumed six double rye-and-Cokes and two Jägerbomb drinks at a bar before driving his Jeep into a group standing at the scene of an earlier accident on Lougheed Highway at Pitt River Road.
Charlene Reaveley, 30, and Lorraine Cruz, 26, were both killed instantly.
Sater fled the scene and later turned himself in.
Testimony from staff at the bar along with video surveillance footage and a blood alcohol expert's analysis were enough for the judge to convict Sater.
The judge is expected to hand down the sentence Friday morning in New Westminster.
