12 years in prison for West Fargo man in fatal DUI crash

FARGO, N.D. (AP) — A West Fargo man has been sentenced to spend 12 years in prison for driving drunk and causing a crash that killed a passenger in his vehicle last summer.

A judge in Cass County on Monday suspended eight years of a 20-year sentence and ordered Daniel Dal Pozzo to serve five years of supervised release.

The 35-year-old Dal Pozzo pleaded guilty to criminal vehicular homicide and criminal mischief in the June 2019 crash that killed his friend, 38-year-old Johnny Grey.

Dal Pozzo drove in the wrong lane slammed into several parked vehicles in West Fargo. Prosecutors say Dal Pozzo's blood alcohol content was 0.21%, nearly three times the legal limit to drive.
