Drunken driver gets 3 years for fatal crash


BOWLING GREEN — A rural Perrysburg man was sentenced Friday to three years in prison for a drunken-driving crash that killed his passenger.

Wood County Common Pleas Judge Alan Mayberry fined Justin David Shane, 24, of 10285 Dowling Rd., $525 and suspended his driver’s license for five years.

Shane pleaded guilty on Nov. 25 to aggravated vehicular homicide and operating a vehicle while under the influence for an Aug. 29, 2012, crash that killed Crystal McLaughlin, 31, of Wayne, Ohio.

Authorities said Shane was driving west on Dowling Road near Carter Road in Middleton Township at a high rate of speed when his car went off the road and struck a tree.
