DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) - A man and a teenager found guilty in connection to a drag racing crash that killed a couple in Davenport have been sentenced.

The Quad-City Times (https://bit.ly/22pfEHT ) reports that 37-year-old Timothy Bell and a 17-year-old were sentenced Friday.

Police say the teen was racing Bell Oct. 25 when their cars collided with a car driven by 54-year-old Jody Smith. Smith was seriously injured and her parents, 80-year-old Erma Mooberry and 90-year-old Ronald Mooberry, died from injuries.

Bell received a suspended 10-year sentence and three years of probation. The teen was given a deferred judgment and three years of probation. They both pleaded guilty to two counts of vehicular homicide by reckless driving and one count of serious injury by vehicle. They have been ordered to pay $150,000 for each victim.

The Associated Press generally does not name juveniles charged with crimes.
