SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) – A Sioux City man who ran a stop sign and caused a fatal crash last summer has been given 10 years in prison.
Court records say Julian Espinoza was sentenced Monday in Sioux City. He’d pleaded guilty to vehicular homicide by driving recklessly, causing the July 26 crash that fatally injured Ronald Hacker, of Sioux City.
A charge of vehicular driving while intoxicated was changed and a charge of child endangerment resulting in bodily injury was dismissed as part of a plea agreement.
Espinoza’s juvenile son was in his pickup truck at the time of the crash. Hacker died three days later.
