DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - A 19-year-old man has been given 20 years in prison for the crash death of a 12-year-old girl in Des Moines.

Court records show Fernando Lopez Aguilar was sentenced Friday. He’d been convicted of reckless driving, involuntary manslaughter and related crimes.

Investigators say Lopez Aguilar sped through a stop sign on Sept. 8 last year and hit a pickup truck, knocking it into the path of a sport utility vehicle. The girl, Lea Phann, was in one of the other vehicles. Four other people were injured.
