Man Accused in 2 Traffic Deaths May Keep License

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ A man with four DUI convictions might not
permanently lose his license, even if convicted a fifth time for an
accident that killed a Wichita woman and her child.
Gary Hammitt is charged with two counts of second-degree murder
and driving under the influence in an October 1st accident that
killed the 37-year-old woman and her 4-year-old daughter.
Police say the 54-year-old Hammitt was under the influence and
speeding. He is being held in the Sedgwick County Jail under a 1
million-dollar bond.
If convicted, Hammitt still would have to be caught driving
under the influence twice more before his license could be
permanently revoked. That's because of the way state law is applied
by the Division of Motor Vehicles.
