DUNN COUNTY (WQOW) - A man convicted in the drunk driving deaths of two prominent area businessmen is going to prison.

Shores

Albart Shores, from La Crosse, was sentenced Thursday to 66 years in prison by a Sauk County judge.

In April a jury convicted Shores of 15 charges stemming from the 2018 crash that killed Scot Miller, the owner of the Whitetail Golf Course in Colfax, and Dave Howe, who owned the school bus company Menomonie Transportation.

Investigators say Shores was drunk and had cocaine in his system when his car came into the victim's lane and hit their SUV, causing it to roll. The crash happened on I-90/94 near Wisconsin Dells.
