An impaired driver who killed a young London mother will spend seven years in jail.
Ahmed Darwish was found guilty of several impaired and dangerous driving charges today.
Court heard Darwish was driving 214 kilometres an hour on Highway 7/8 near New Hamburg in November when he slammed into the Dumitri family car.
29-year old Susanna died at the scene and her 2-month old son was rushed to Sick Kids with severe brain injuries.
Police found two open bottles of alcohol and a baggie with illegal drugs in Darwish’s Mercedes.
After the crash, he refused 17 times to give a breath sample to police.
Darwish was sentenced to 7.5 years in jail but with time served before his conviction, his sentenced will be shortened to seven years.
This is his second impaired driving conviction in eight years.
The infant is not expected to fully recover from his injuries and could need assistance for the rest of his life.
