The driver responsible for the car crash that killed four people and injured over 20 others during last year's SWSX has been sentenced to life after having been found guilty of murder. The jury was unanimous in deciding that Rashad Owens was aware of his actions when he avoided traffic stops and committed other major infractions, therefore making him entirely responsible for the accident. "He didn't care who was in his way," says prosecutor Amy Meredith. "He was not going to be stopped. He was not going to go to jail."

Although Owens was sentenced to a life in prison without the possibility of parole, his defense lawyer Rick Jones argues his client was "unfamiliar with the city" and didn't mean to kill anyone: "We don't know at what point Mr. Owens perceived what was in front of him," the lawyer said. "We don't know what time he had to react."
