Trooper sentenced in crash that killed 4

The Associated Press

LAS VEGAS (AP) – A former Nevada state trooper was sentenced Tuesday to two to 12 years in state prison for an on-duty crash that killed four Mexican immigrants and badly injured a pregnant teen.

Joshua Corcran, 28, pleaded guilty in June to five counts of felony reckless driving in the Feb. 19 crash. He did not stand trial.

Authorities said Corcran was speeding at 113 mph and not on an emergency call when his Nevada Highway Patrol cruiser slammed into the back of a Cadillac traveling 52 mph on Interstate 15 just south of Las Vegas. The speed limit was 65 mph.
