Man sentenced to 5 years in prison for fatal crash

Crashes caused by recklessness are some of the most tragic, particularly for families who lose a loved one. If you've lost someone because of a drunk driver's negligence or because another driver felt speeding was appropriate, you do have rights as a member of the victim's family. On top of a civil case, the driver who killed your loved one may be sentenced, like in this case.

A federal officer and part-time Uber driver has been sentenced in a case in which he struck another vehicle and left a woman dead. According to the story, the man had been driving with a blood alcohol concentration of .10 percent when he struck a Ford Taurus with his Ford Fusion traveling at around 84 mph. He was traveling in a 40 mph speed zone.

When the accident occurred, it was because the 35-year-old drove his vehicle across double yellow lines; the other driver was unable to avoid him. The crash was severe enough that it took the life of the 50-year-old woman, a mother of one.

Shortly after the wreck, a 911 call came in from a different driver who witnessed the event. That driver said that the black vehicle, the 35-year-old man's car, was speeding and that the driver was being reckless. He had run a red light right before the accident.

The 50-year-old woman passed away after the collision, leaving her daughter, now 12, and husband behind. In lieu of the events, the 35-year-old man has been sentenced for the crash, and he will spend five years in prison. He has another five years of probation to complete following his sentence as well.
