GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - A Grand Rapids man was sentenced Monday in connection with a crash that resulted in the death of his passenger.
Michelle Caverley, 22, was thrown from the minivan that Calvin Liptrot Jr. was driving after the vehicle struck a tree near Fremont Avenue and Third Street NW on the northwest side of Grand Rapids.
Police said Liptrot ran her over before fleeing the scene on Dec. 22, 2012, according to the Associated Press.
Caverley later died at a hospital.
Liptrot was later found and arrested. He then pleaded no contest to operating while intoxicated causing death and failure to stop at the scene of an accident. Authorities say his blood alcohol level was 0.15 percent, nearly twice the legal limit. They say he'd also used cocaine and marijuana, reports the Associated Press.
Liptrot will now spend 10 to 40 years in prison.
The father of six says he doesn't remember the crash, reports the Associated Press. He apologized to Caverley's family before the sentencing.
Police are investigating a report of a home invasion, but say there are inconsistencies.
