WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) — A Grafton man police say was driving between 80 and 100 miles per hour when he crashed into another vehicle, killing two teenagers, has been sentenced to up to nine years in prison.
Robert Curran was sentenced Thursday after pleading guilty to charges including vehicular homicide in connection with the October 2011 crash in Worcester.
Authorities say Curran had been drinking before the crash and fled the scene after being examined by an EMT responding to the accident. He was arrested at a hospital where he had gone to seek treatment for injuries. He did not face any alcohol-related charges.
The crash killed 18-year-old Andres Guzman and 19-year-old Joel Rodriguez. A third person was seriously injured.
The Telegram & Gazette (http://bit.ly/Yt0wXe) reports that Curran's lawyer says her client is remorseful.
