BRIGHTON, Colo. (AP) - A man who pleaded guilty to driving drunk and being involved in a street-race that killed a 26-year-old woman in Adams County last year has been sentenced to 12 years in prison.

An Adams County judge on Thursday sentenced 28-year-old David Felan to 10 years for vehicular homicide while driving drunk, and two years for vehicular assault. Felan pleaded guilty to the charges in June.

Authorities say Felan was racing with 34-year-old William Anthony Chicano IV in November when Felan lost control of his car and drove into oncoming traffic, crashing into Rachel Neiman’s car and killing her. Three passengers in her vehicle were injured, including her boyfriend.

Chicano has pleaded guilty to vehicular assault. He is scheduled to be sentenced Sept. 16 in Adams County.
