This is a very sad story. A 39 year old man Randy Archiquette caused a total of five crashes within 30 minutes on April 14, 2009.
At 3:59 p.m., police say, Archiquette crashed into Williams, pushing her northbound 1994 Chevrolet sedan into a telephone pole. He continued north, blowing through the intersection with Hillsborough Avenue, colliding head-on with McFarland, who was southbound on Florida, just blocks from home.
Both were pronounced dead at area hospitals, leaving family members reeling over their sudden deaths.
Now Randy at 41 will server 21 years in prison and 24 years of probation for killing McFarland and 69-year-old Betty Williams in a 2009 drunken driving incident, Hillsborough Circuit Judge Thomas Barber decided Friday.
