Man Sentenced For Hit-and-Run of Army Recruiters

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – A Minneapolis man who struck two U.S. Army recruiters with his vehicle and dragged one for almost a mile has been sentenced to nearly 16 years in prison.

Fifty-three-year-old Enrico Taylor apologized at Friday’s sentencing and asked for a lighter penalty. But Ramsey County District Court Judge Judith Tilson gave him the maximum.

Taylor pleaded guilty to assault last November.

 

Authorities say the two soldiers were in a Roseville crosswalk in September when they were hit by a Jeep driven by Taylor.

Staff Sgt. Travis Torgerson was dragged for nearly a mile before he freed himself. He was severely injured. Reports say Torgerson asked the judge to give Taylor the maximum sentence.

Staff Sgt. Michael Stroud was also hit, and rolled over the top of the Taylor’s Jeep.
