OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — A 20-year-old man has been imprisoned for crashing into a car and killing the woman driving it along an Omaha freeway.

Douglas County District Court records say Vismar Carmona-Martinez was sentenced Monday to 10 to 11 years in prison and credited for 498 days already served in custody. He’d pleaded no contest in March to felony vehicular homicide.

Prosecutors say Carmona-Martinez’s car rear-ended another car around 12:30 a.m. Jan 1, 2018. The driver of the car he hit, 67-year-old Ann Smock, died at an Omaha hospital.

Police say Carmona-Martinez’s blood alcohol content was three times the legal limit to drive. Prosecutors also say Carmona-Martinez is in the country illegally.
