A judge sentenced a 25-year-old Columbia woman to 10 years in prison for hitting a man volunteering at a triathlon while she was speeding and on FaceTime.

Regine McCracken was given the maximum sentence Wednesday in the 2019 death of Randall Siddens. McCracken pleaded guilty in March to first-degree involuntary manslaughter.

A probable cause statement said McCracken was driving 68 mph in a 50-mph zone and was on FaceTime when she didn't slow down for a red light.

She swerved to avoid a car and then hit Siddens, who was removing traffic cones after an  Ultramax Sports triathlon.
