KENT, Wash. – The driver of a vehicle that crashed in Auburn, killing four passengers and seriously injuring a fifth, has been sentenced to nearly 50 years.
KOMO-TV reported that Nicholas Anderson on Friday was sentenced to 49 years and four months in prison. He was previously convicted of four counts of vehicular homicide, one count of vehicular assault and reckless driving.
