KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

A man who admitted he had stolen a vehicle from an Independence car lot and was drunk when he ran a red light, causing the crash that killed a woman coming from church was sentenced Thursday.

Jonathan Ross, 24, was sentenced to 15 years in prison for his role in the 2011 traffic accident that killed a 65-year-old woman, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced.

Ross was sentenced to 15 years on involuntary first-degree manslaughter, and seven years on each of several counts, including tampering, second-degree assault and stealing a motor vehicle, four years for leaving the scene of a motor vehicle accident; one year for operating while revoked.

Ross was sentenced by Jackson County Judge Sandra Midkiff.

Ross' speeding truck ran a red light and slammed into the vehicle of Gertrude Price, who was returning from volunteer work at her church. The collision killed her.

Ross pleaded to the charges in June.
