NAMPA, Idaho (AP) - A Nampa man who was driving drunk when he struck a 19-year-old pedestrian in March has been sent to prison for 10 years.

The Idaho Press-Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1f9gD8p ) that 46-year-old Francisco Lopez was sentenced on Friday.

Lopez pleaded guilty to aggravated driving under the influence on June 2. Following his release from prison, his driver’s license will be suspended for five years.

Lopez was driving drunk on March 18 when his truck began swerving into oncoming traffic and forcing other vehicles off the road. He then struck a woman who was standing next to her car on South Florence Street. The woman survived.

Lopez has two prior DUI convictions. He was also ordered to pay a $1,000 fine.
