COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A central Ohio man has been sentenced to 14 years in prison for a 2013 drunken driving crash that killed one of his passengers and injured three others.

A judge in Columbus sentenced 24-year-old Jacob Bluhm of Plain City on Tuesday. He was convicted last month of aggravated vehicular homicide, aggravated vehicular assault, vehicular assault and driving while intoxicated.

According to The Columbus Dispatch (https://bit.ly/1hCDKsH), he was driving a group of friends from Madison County to Columbus. He was driving a pickup truck at least 95 mph when it left the road, hit and ditch and rolled over in a corn field.

Bluhm and the four passengers were ejected. Twenty-eight-year-old Daniel Toops died at the scene.

Bluhm’s blood-alcohol tested at 0.168 percent, double the legal limit in Ohio.
