MILTON TOWNSHIP A driver involved in a fatal accident two years ago has been sentenced to jail and probation.
Donavan Avance, 24, of Elkhart, was driving on U.S. 12 in Milton Township in July 2012. He wanted to pass a truck in front of him, so he pulled into the oncoming traffic lane even though it was a no-passing zone. Tim McCavit was approaching on a motorcycle, and Avance ran him over.
The Niles Daily Star reports that a judge sentenced Avance to 90 days in jail and five years’ probation.
