Kansas State Student Sentenced For Crash That Killed Two

KSAL StaffJune 17, 2013

A Kansas State University graduate student has been sentenced to 60 days in jail plus three years’ probation for head-on crash that killed two people last year.

The Manhattan Mercury reports a Riley County judge imposed the sentence Monday on Miles Theurer, who could have received up to 14 years in prison.

The 24-year-old veterinary medicine student pleaded no contest in May to two counts of involuntary manslaughter while driving under the influence of alcohol.

Theurer was driving a pickup truck that crashed into a car the morning of May 14, 2012. The collision killed the car’s occupants, Michael Stanley and Elizabeth Young, who were both 31 years old.

During his probation, Theurer must speak to at least three dozen schools and churches about the dangers of drunken driving.
