VANCOUVER, July 27 (Xinhua) -- A Canadian woman whose drunk driving left four people dead in January received a 10-year sentence on Wednesday.

Catherine McKay, 49, pleaded guilty in June to four counts of impaired driving that killed a whole family. In the accident in January, McKay failed to stop her car and collided with another car carrying a couple with their two children. They all died later.

Police officers found after the crash that McKay's blood-alcohol level was three times of the legal limit, according to a report by Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.
