OMAHA, Nebraska — A 31-year-old man has been given 35 to 40 years in prison for running into and killing a Creighton University professor while driving drunk in Omaha.
Pedro Diego-Antonio had pleaded guilty to a felony charge of vehicular homicide with a prior conviction for driving under the influence. He was sentenced on Wednesday in Douglas County District Court.
Authorities say Diego-Antonio had drunk more than a dozen beers last June and was driving down Dodge Street when his car struck Dr. Edward Horowitz, who was in a crosswalk, crossing with the proper signal. Horowitz was a physician and an associate professor of medicine at Creighton.
