    A Florida man was sentenced Thursday to eight years in prison for a drunken driving crash that left two people dead. The sentencing came after Subhan Khurram, 27, previously pleaded guilty to two counts of DUI manslaughter, the Palm Beach Post reported. He had faced up to 10 years in prison. Khurram was driving south in the northbound lanes of Interstate 95 in Boca Raton in July 2015 when he crashed head-on into a car occupied by Frans McCatty and Ricardo Fletcher. They died at the scene, while Khurran was hospitalized with severe injuries. Within an hour after the crash, Khurram’s blood-alcohol level was 0.191 percent, and he had marijuana in his system, according to the arrest report. Florida law considers a driver impaired at 0.08 percent.
