A Bronx man who killed a 10-year-old girl and two other people when his car plowed into a group of Halloween trick-or-treaters in 2015 was sentenced Friday to four to 12 years in jail.
Howard Unger, 55, lost control of his car when he suffered an epileptic seizure — and the accident might have been prevented had he taken his anti-seizure drug, Bronx prosecutors said.
Unger’s car jumped a curb on Morris Park Ave. and mowed down a group of pedestrians that included Louis Perez, 65; Perez’s 10-year-old granddaughter, Nyanna Aquil; and Kristjan Leka, 24.
All three were killed in the crash.
Perez was a retired Army veteran, who was honored with a Purple Heart for his service in Vietnam. His granddaughter was trick-or-treating in a cat costume.
Several years earlier, Unger crashed another car after failing to take his anti-seizure medication. His mother, a passenger in the vehicle, was seriously hurt.
