COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - A Colorado Springs man who pleaded guilty to vehicular homicide and vehicular assault after crashing into another vehicle has been given the maximum sentence.

Michael Friedlander was sentenced Friday to 10 years in prison.

Police say he was going nearly 90 miles per hour when he crashed into another vehicle in downtown Colorado Springs. One person was killed and another critically injured in the accident in July.
