Woman Sentenced to 10 years for Death of Triathlon Volunteer
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.
