Man sentenced to 4 years for Missouri crash
Saturday, May 10, 2014
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) — A California man has been sentenced to four years in prison after pleading guilty to charges stemming from a southwest Missouri crash that killed two people.
The Springfield News-Leader reports (http://sgfnow.co/1qpX0fX) that 32-year-old Lei Sun, of Alhambra, California, was sentenced Friday after he pleaded guilty to two counts of first-degree involuntary manslaughter in connection with the deaths of Lawrence Coan and Corey Gresham.
Coan and Gresham were stopped at a traffic signal on U.S. 60 near Republic in March 2013 when Sun's tractor-trailer crashed into their vehicles, which were pushed into another semi in front of them.
During a previous hearing, a Missouri State Highway Patrol investigator said Sun's tractor-trailer had problems with the brakes and tires, but the investigator didn't know if that could contribute to the crash.
