Man handed lifetime driving ban for crash that killed a 23-year-old woman from Surrey

A 42-year-old man convicted of impaired driving causing death and dangerous driving causing bodily harm in December has been sentenced to three years in prison, and a lifetime driving ban.

23-year-old Vanessa Usak was killed when Stephen Jenkins’ car crossed the line in July 2008. A passenger in Usak’s car was also seriously injured.  It happened on 144th Street and 108th Avenue in Surrey.

Jenkins has a record involving previous driving prohibitions and driving offenses.

On the night of the crash, he had a blood alcohol level above the legal limit.  But Usak also was driving impaired.

Jenkins maintains he is innocent, and it was Usak who crashed into him.
