DELAWARE, Ohio (AP) - A central Ohio man has been sentenced to 30 days behind bars in the death of a 19-year-old woman who died after being hit by a boat in 2014.

The Columbus Dispatch reports (https://bit.ly/29QqyhD ) a Delaware County judge handed down the sentence on Wednesday against 36-year-old Andrew Lehman after he pleaded no contest to failure to avoid a collision.

Authorities say Morgan Montgomery fell while water-skiing on Alum Creek Reservoir and was hit by the speed boat Lehman was driving. He denied hitting Montgomery but witnesses and evidence proved it was his boat that hit her.

State watercraft officials called Montgomery’s death a freak accident.

Montgomery was a church counselor from Australia and was with a church group when the incident happened.
