Derek Clark of Wayland has been sentenced to 6 to 12 years in state prison by the Steuben County Court.
Clark was the driver of a vehicle on Rt. 63 near the Dinky Doo petting zoo, when the vehicle missed a curve, hit a guard rail and utility pole before overturning. Clark’s daughter Leah, a student at Wayland-Cohocton Elementary School, was in a booster seat in the back seat, and was pronounced dead at the scene.
Clark was charged with DWAI and manslaughter for his role in the September 14, 2020 crash.
