SAGINAW, Mich. A Saginaw County judge has given a 30- to 45-year prison sentence to a man who was on drugs and unlicensed when his pickup truck crossed a center line and struck two other vehicles, killing two sisters.
The March 20 crash in Saginaw Township killed 63-year-old Carol Lyle and 67-year-old Judith Kelly, both from Bridgeport. Police say a third sister was at the wheel of the car and was injured.
Forty-four-year-old Kevin D. Haynes pleaded no-contest to operating a motor vehicle on drugs causing death.
Judge Darnell Jackson said Thursday that he exceeded sentencing guidelines because Haynes has an "utterly deplorable criminal history" that includes 14 misdemeanors.
Haynes also was injured and now uses a wheelchair. He apologized before sentencing.
Haynes' lawyer says his client overdosed on prescription pain medication.
