DENVER (AP) - A driver who struck and seriously injured a Denver officer during a protest over police killings has been sentenced to six years in a community corrections program.

The Denver Post reports (http://goo.gl/cy9IYk ) Christopher Booker was sentenced Friday after previously pleading guilty to vehicular assault and attempting to influence a public servant.

He apparently suffered a seizure Dec. 3, 2014, when he struck John Adsit and other officers monitoring a protest of hundreds of high school students.

Police say Booker knew his medical condition made him dangerous on the road, but he didn’t disclose the problem when applying for driver’s licenses between 2006 and 2015.

Adsit underwent 11 surgeries to repair crushed ribs, a punctured lung, a severed artery in his leg, a broken femur and a cracked pelvis.
