A Brampton truck driver has been sentenced to four-and-a-half years in jail in connection with a 2019 collision that killed three members of a London family.

The crash happened in June, 2019, at a rural intersection north of Listowel.

Three people were killed in the collision, Walter Yetman, 60, Donna Yetman, 58, and their daughter Stephanie Roloson, 28.

A two-year-old boy in the vehicle with them had non-life threatening injuries.

Police determined the transport truck went through a stop sign at the intersection.

Gurvinder Singh was originally charged with three counts of death by criminal negligence. However, he pleaded guilty to three counts of dangerous operation causing death and one count of dangerous operation causing bodily harm.

Singh was also given a five-year licence suspension.
