EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — A 31-year-old Cottage Grove man has been sentenced to six years in prison for a hit-and-run accident that killed an 18-year-old pedestrian.
The Eugene Register-Guard reports (bit.ly/O31QJ6) that Jason Manske also lost his driving privileges permanently and must pay $36,797 in restitution.
He pleaded guilty Tuesday to criminally negligent homicide, failing to perform the duties of a driver and tampering with evidence, as well as to drug offenses in two earlier cases.
Bryson Michael Krissie was walking near Lane Community College, where he was a student, when Manske's pickup truck hit him June 6. Prosecutors say Manske told investigators he knew he'd hit someone but didn't stop because he had no insurance and was scared. He was arrested two days later.
