DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) - A 25-year-old Dubuque man has been given 120 days in jail and two years of probation for a fatal accident with a pedestrian last spring.

The Telegraph Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1yfI1cJ ) that Alex Hannan on Wednesday was sentenced to a year in jail, with all but 120 days suspended. He’d been convicted of driving while intoxicated.

Court documents say Hannan was driving on the U.S. Highway 20 on-ramp in Farley around 3 a.m. on April 6 when his vehicle struck Dawson Besler, who was walking on the ramp. Dubuque County Attorney Ralph Potter has said that, because Besler was walking in the middle of the roadway, the evidence didn’t support a charge of vehicular homicide.
