SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A 30-year-old Sioux Falls man who lost sight in one eye when a portable meth lab exploded in a vehicle he was driving has been sentenced to five years in prison.

The Argus Leader (https://argusne.ws/1LRyMpQ ) reports JayJay Stanton Coronado was driving while he and a woman made methamphetamine in a 20-ounce pop bottle. The meth lab exploded, burning both people and setting the vehicle on fire.

Coronado continued driving and eventually struck a light pole. He and the woman tossed burning clothes and remnants of the meth lab out of the vehicle.

Police spokesman Sam Clemens says it’s unclear whether the vehicle stopped because it had two flat tires or due to injuries.

Emergency responders found a small amount of meth and another meth lab in the vehicle.
