CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP) — A driver convicted of killing one worker and injuring another in a construction zone on an Ohio interstate has been sentenced to at least a decade in prison.

Thirty-three-year-old Sabra Tolliver of Lakewood was sentenced Wednesday after pleading guilty earlier this month to aggravated vehicular homicide, failure to stop after an accident and driving while under the influence.

Prosecutors said Tolliver hit the 61-year-old and 25-year-old victims at an I-71 construction zone outside Cleveland in October 2019.

Authorities said the older victim was dragged underneath her vehicle for more than 1,200 feet and died at the scene.

A co-worker followed the vehicle to a Middleburg Heights restaurant and called police.
