DENVER (AP) - A man who was involved in a DUI crash that killed a University of Colorado student has been sentenced to 20 years in prison.

The Denver Post reports (https://goo.gl/KqP0gf ) 37-year-old Justin Scott Goshorn was sentenced Tuesday for the Nov. 15 crash that killed 18-year-old Sam Shelton. Goshorn pleaded guilty in May to several charges, including vehicular homicide while driving under the influence, first-degree assault and vehicular assault.

Goshorn, whose blood-alcohol content was twice the legal limit for driving, was speeding on Highway 93 in Jefferson County when he crossed the center line and struck a vehicle carrying four students.

Shelton died from his injuries in January. Another student also was seriously injured in the crash.
