A drunk driver who killed three children when he crashed into the back of a vehicle in which they were passengers has been sentenced to 30 years in prison. Forty-seven-year-old Matthew Richard Park of Fairfield received the sentence Wednesday in 5th District Court. He will have to serve at least 17 years before he's eligible for parole. Park pleaded guilty in May to aggravated DUI and three felony counts of vehicular manslaughter.
