Georgia truck driver sentenced for fatal crash near OFallon IL | Belleville News-Democrat

A trucker who was high on crack cocaine, speeding and fighting with his girlfriend when he ran a red light and killed a Summerfield woman received a 14-year prison sentence Friday.

Luke was driving a semitrailer on U.S. 50 east of O’Fallon on Nov. 8, 2016, when he and his female passenger got into an argument. The woman jumped from the moving truck.

Other drivers called 911, but before police got to the scene, Luke had crashed his truck into a line of cars. Police later said that he was speeding when he crashed his semi into four cars. Culver, the driver of one of those cars, was killed.
