BELCAMP, Md. (AP) - A Maryland man has been sentenced to a year in prison after pleading guilty to negligent driving while impaired in the death of a 15-year-old girl.

Twenty-year-old Kyle Johnson of Belcamp was sentenced at an emotional hearing Monday in Harford County court.

Prosecutors say Johnson had taken the synthetic drug “spice” on June 27 last year when he lost consciousness while driving in Belcamp. Johnson lost control of his car, crossed the center line and hit an oncoming truck head-on, killing 15-year-old Jenna Nicole Pollock of Aberdeen. Johnson and two others were injured but survived.

The Harford County State’s Attorney’s Office says Jenna’s father and aunt spoke ahead of Johnson’s sentencing, telling Judge Maurice Baldwin that Johnson’s irresponsible behavior has caused their family unimaginable devastation and grief.
