Carrollton Man Sentenced to 15 Years for 2 DUI Deaths
On March 18th, Michael Cory Camp, the Carrollton man involved in the alcohol-related crash that killed two 20-year-old’s last May was sentenced to 15 years in prison, the AJC reports.
Camp’s blood alcohol level was .214, three times the legal limit on the night of the crash. His car collided head-on with a BMW on Post Road in Douglas County, resulting in the death of both the driver, Zachary Crenshaw, and passenger, Mathew Miller, on impact.
According to law enforcement’s reconstruction of the accident, Camp was driving 86 mph in a 45 mph zone. That night, Camp started drinking at an Atlanta Braves Game and continued to do so at two bars afterward, with the second bar refusing to serve him more alcohol.
Camp’s attorney negotiated a plea on two counts of vehicular homicide by DUI. Yet the judge did not grant first offender status, and sentenced Camp to 20 years, with the first half to be served in prison.
