Driver gets 12 years for fleeing from fatal crash

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A driver that fled from a Dane County crash that killed his friend has been sentenced to 12 years in prison.

Bradley Pellmann told Judge Nicholas McNamara on Monday that he’s ashamed that he panicked and failed to stay at the scene of the crash that killed Nathan Trickel. Authorities investigating the accident initially though the 31-year-old victim was driving because the car belonged to him. Both had been drinking at a party before the crash.

The State Journal says Pellmann earlier pleaded no contest to hit and run involving death.
