A former professional boxer will spend the next 10 years behind bars after killing a pregnant mother of four when he crashed into her Chrysler minivan while intoxicated.

On Thursday, Marcos A. Forestal received his sentence of 10 years in state prison, KTLA and News Channel 3 report.

Forestal pleaded guilty to gross vehicular manslaughter in March following the horrific incident nearly a year ago, according to KTLA. He previously pleaded not guilty.

On Sept. 9, Forestal’s BMW plowed head-on into expectant mom Krystil Kincaid in Hemet, California at around 8:30 p.m., the Helmet Police Department revealed in a statement.

Arriving on scene shortly after the crash, police found Kincaid’s car “partially on fire” with the 8 months pregnant woman trapped, police said. Emergency responders were able to extinguish the blaze and the 29-year-old woman was airlifted to a nearby hospital.

Her unborn baby died and Kincaid was put on life support, however, doctors pronounced her dead the following day, a GoFundMe set up for the family said.

Officers found Forestal, who is the World Boxing Federation International Super Bantamweight champion, walking near his vehicle on the scene, authorities said.

“Forestal displayed symptoms of alcohol intoxication and was arrested,” the Helmet Police Department continued.

The boxer live-streamed the aftermath of the crash on Facebook Live. The since-deleted video was recorded by some social media users and shared online and by the El Nuevo Herald.

In the video, Forestal, who sustained only minor injuries, shows viewers his totaled car while saying, “Look what happened to me, guys.”

“A car crossed in front of me and look what happened to my car,” the Cuban boxer, who resided in Burbank in Los Angeles at the time, says in Spanish in the video.

Heartbreakingly, Kincaid was on the phone with her husband Zach during the time of the crash, according to KTLA.

Zach, who was married to Kincaid for 12 years, told the outlet he heard his wife scream before the impact. He also heard the firefighters trying to pull her from the vehicle.

The heartbroken father of four told friends and family about the tragic incident on Facebook. “My life has been full of adversity, but today I experienced the hardest thing i have ever done.”
