Hit-and-run killer strikes out in court

Convicted hit and run killer Paul Antunes has lost his bid to be allowed to drive again four years after he’s released from prison.

He’s currently serving five and a half years for criminal negligence causing the deaths of Stanley Wong and John Larkin.

They were two of the three men Antunes struck on November 11th, 2005 in downtown Vancouver. 

When he was convicted, he was banned from driving for 11 years.

He was seeking to have that ban reduced, but three BC Court of Appeal judges have quickly dismissed his application… saying Antunes has a history of reckless driving and he’s never explained why he left the scene of the fatal crash.

He’s eligible for parole in December.
