Teen Sentenced To Detention Camp In Fatal Crash

LAS VEGAS (AP) - The 16-year-old driver in a crash that killed a 15-year-old high school classmate has been sentenced to six months at a county juvenile detention camp and 500 hours of community service.

The teen apologized in Family Court for speeding in a pickup truck that crashed Nov. 14 in the Sun City Anthem area of Henderson, killing Coronado High School sophomore Olivia Hyten and injuring another teen.

He pleaded guilty last month to involuntary manslaughter and aggressive driving.

Clark County Family Court Judge William Voy sentenced the teen to six months at the Spring Mountain Youth Camp. He also banned him from driving again until he turns 21.
