MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A driver that fled from a Dane County crash that killed his friend has been sentenced to 12 years in prison.

Bradley Pellmann told a judge Monday that he’s ashamed that he panicked and failed to stay at the scene of the crash that killed Nathan Trickel. Authorities investigating the accident initially though the 31-year-old victim was driving because the car belonged to him. Both had been drinking at a party before the crash.

The State Journal (https://bit.ly/1A3ndDV ) says Pellmann earlier pleaded no contest to hit and run involving death.
