The man who is charged with drunk driving that led to the deaths of four high school students in Grande Prairie is seeking a plea deal.
Brenden Holubowich faces 16 charges, including impaired driving causing death, after a crash last October killed four high school students.
Walter Borden-Wilkins, Tanner Hildebrand, Matthew Deller and Vince Stover died on Oct. 22 when the vehicle they were in crashed with a pickup truck.
Holubowich was behind the wheel of the truck.
A fifth teen, 16-year-old Zach Judd, was injured in the crash and has been undergoing physiotherapy to regain his strength.
Judd was airlifted to hospital in Edmonton, where doctors discovered he was suffering from brain injuries, a fractured skull, a broken rib and a punctured lung. Judd was in a coma for 11 days and couldn't walk or communicate after coming back to consciousness.
He said last February that he is determined to get back into sports.
"I want to play sports, but I can't play the sports that I like playing, because of my brain injury," Judd said. "So I have to take a year to get ready to play them."
A trial scheduled for next year has since been cancelled after news of the potential deal came out.
An agreed statement of faces is expected to be brought forward on February 2.
Holubowich will likely be sentenced at the same time.
