Del Mar

Professional surfer Milton Willis was sentenced to four years in prison, after a drink-and-drive fatal accident killed his 24-year-old passenger in Del Mar, California, USA.

Willis, a tow-in surfer aged 53, pleaded guilty to gross vehicular manslaughter while under the influence of alcohol.

The accident occurred when he lost control of the Toyota Avalon while driving about 65 mph in a 25-mph zone.

Soon after, the car hit a parked car and smashed into a palm tree.
