MOUNT HOLLY, NJ. – A driver who caused the deaths of a couple killed when a crash sent their minivan plunging into frigid waters has been sentenced to nearly 13 years in state prison.

Amish Patel, 31, was sentenced Jan. 16. The Delanco man had pleaded guilty in November to drunken driving and two counts of vehicular homicide.

Patel was speeding when he lost control of his car in January 2018 and hit a minivan that was stopped in the jug handle while waiting to cross over Route 130 in Willingboro, according to Burlington County prosecutors.

The impact sent the minivan over a guardrail and down an embankment before it went into a body of water that’s part of Olympia Lake.
