Minneapolis Driver Sentenced to Four Years in Bicyclist’s Death
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A Minneapolis man has been sentenced to four years in prison for a drunken driving crash that killed a bicyclist last year.
Fifty-year-old John Iverson was sentenced last week after pleading guilty to criminal vehicular homicide in October.
Reports say Iverson received 338 days credit for time served.
Iverson was accused of driving his van last February after drinking heavily at a bar. Witnesses say Iverson sped west down Franklin Avenue in south Minneapolis, then suddenly swerved toward the cub and struck Marcus Nalls, a 26-year-old chef and bicycle commuter.
Iverson continued driving down the block until his van stopped after hitting a trash bin.
