Tanner James Mack, 26, received a suspended 2-5-year prison sentence on Tuesday for reckless driving causing substantial bodily harm.
Prosecutor Patrick Ferguson said that if not for the timing of the blood tests taken in the case, Mack would have faced a mandatory prison term.
He said that four hours after the 1:30 p.m. collision Mack had a .10 blood alcohol content and that it was going down, indicating that he was more intoxicated when the collision occurred. Ferguson said that at the standard rate, Mack could have had up to a .18 blood alcohol content when he drove his work van down Kingsbury Grade causing a collision that injured three people.
The victims indicated in a letter that they’d forgiven Mack, which Ferguson said was very gracious.
“I’m deeply disturbed by my actions that day,” Mack said. “It was a horrible, horrible decision. I shouldn’t have consumed any alcohol at all.”

According to court documents Mack, was driving east on Kingsbury Grade attempting to pass other vehicles by crossing the double yellow line, which are considered no passing zones. Mack collided with a vehicle going westbound.
