Wellons Sentenced in Roanoke


Roanoke, VA - Last summer, police charged a Roanoke man with driving drunk and causing a deadly accident on Interstate 581.

State police say Timothy Wellons admitted the evidence would show he forced a big rig off the northbound lanes and into southbound traffic where it slammed into a second tractor trailer, killing both drivers.

Wellons was in court Monday for sentencing where he faced up to 42 years in prison.

Wellons has been sentenced 15 and-a-half years in prison.
