SALT LAKE CITY — A Kearns man has been sentenced to spend up to 15 years in prison for causing a deadly crash while driving under the influence.

Third District Judge Elizabeth Hruby-Mills handed down the sentence Friday to 45-year-old Manuel de Jesus Guinea, who earlier pleaded guilty to felony automobile homicide.

Police say he crashed his truck into the back of a Subaru that was carrying 3-year-old Zane Thurber in late January. The boy died later that night.

The impact pushed the Subaru into the car in front of it, causing a chain-reaction that involved four other vehicles and injured nine other people.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports ( ) the judge said Guinea is a native of El Salvador and will be turned over to immigration officials for deportation upon release.
