Andrew Williams sentenced to six months in jail for crash that killed two of his children

Andrew Williams, who drove his minivan into a moving train, killing two of his children and injuring two others, has been sentenced to six months in jail for his role in the crash.

The Lakeshore father was convicted of dangerous driving in January.

Sisters Wynter Williams, 6, and Brooklyn, 3, were killed in the crash on the morning of June 10, 2012 when their dad was crossing the train tracks on Strong Road just north of County Road 42.

Their brother, Dryden, 4 at the time, was critically injured in the crash. The family's youngest child Jasmyn also suffered minor injuries in the collision.

Father's pain a 'book of tears'

Superior Court Justice Kirk Munroe said a "reasonable person" would pay attention while driving.

"The death of one's child is devastating," he added in his ruling. "Justice must be tempered with mercy."

Munroe also said he was impressed by letters of support written for Williams, but he could not bring the children back or make the father's pain go away.

"I am not the last word, in a book of tears," he stated, referring to the grief and anguish Williams must feel after losing his daughters.

Williams also received a five-year driving ban, two years of probation and $600 in fines.
