A Saskatoon man is going to jail after pleading guilty to killing a local restaurant owner in a motor vehicle crash.

On Wednesday, Provincial court Judge Marilyn Gray sentenced Kenneth Bruynooghe, 37, to a jail sentence of two years less a day.

Court heard Bruynooghe was late for a flight and was racing to the airport early on a Sunday morning in February.

He drove through a four-way stop sign, slamming his half-ton truck into a minivan being driven by Tommy Tse.

Tse, who was coming home from a night shift at the Olympia restaurant, which he owned, was killed.

Bruynooghe was charged with dangerous driving causing death.
