Patrick Walsh, the drunk driver responsible for a car crash that killed two people in September 2011, will be sentenced in a St. Louis County courtroom this morning.
Walsh, according to reports, was was driving a truck about 100 mph and had a blood-alcohol level twice the legal limit when he crashed into a Chevy Tahoe on Interstate 270, near West Florissant Road.
Walsh and the other occupants in the Tahoe had minor injuries.
Walsh was charged, and later pleaded guilty, to two counts of manslaughter while operating a vehicle with a blood-alcohol level of .18 percent or greater and five counts of assault.
