BIRMINGHAM, AL (AP) - Two drivers in an illegal car race in 2008 that ended in two deaths have pleaded guilty to reduced charges for their roles in killing one of the victims, a spectator who was videotaping the race.
Yardley Potter, was sentenced to five years after pleading guilty Monday to vehicular homicide and leaving the scene of an accident with injuries.
The Ebro, Fla. man's car struck and killed 29-year-old Lonnie King, who was videotaping the race.
The other racer, Brian English Murphy, also received a 5-year sentence after pleading guilty Friday to vehicular homicide and leaving the scene of an accident with injuries.
Murphy was traveling at almost 100 mph when he lost control and swerved into Potter's car.
Another man is charged with fatally shooting someone who was betting on the race.
