Man gets 5-year sentence in road rage killing in Kansas City

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) _ A 22-year-old Kansas City man involved in a road rage incident that killed a woman has been sentenced to five years in prison.

Juan Sanchez was sentenced Tuesday for involuntary manslaughter in the January 2017 death of 35-year-old Shaymaa Saudi.

The Kansas City Star reports court records indicate Sanchez was involved in a confrontation with Saudi’s husband. Prosecutors say Sanchez bumped Saudi’s vehicle, causing Saudi’s car to leave the road and hit a utility pole.

Saudi’s 4-year-old daughter was injured in the crash.

Sanchez fled, parked his truck at a relative’s house, removed the license plate and covered the truck with a tarp.

He was also sentenced to a concurrent sentence of four years for tampering with evidence.
