A professional truck driver who says he zoned out driving on Saskatchewan’s flat highways before crashing into and killing three high school football players in May 2015 will hear his prison sentence Monday.
The Winnipeg trucker, Normand Lavoie, 41, told police that he didn’t fall asleep at the wheel, but that he was in “la la land, basically — I’m there behind the wheel but I’m not.”
