Florida teen gets community service for fatal crash

January 23, 2019

FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) — A Florida teen has received a six-month driver-license suspension and 20 hours of community service for a fatal crash.

The News-Press reports that the teen was sentenced last week after pleading no contest to careless driving.

Authorities say the then-17-year-old boy was driving at a high rate of speed on a Fort Myers street in January 2018 when he was hit by another vehicle pulling out of a parking lot. A passenger in the other car, 17-year-old Erik Babatz, suffered serious injuries and later died at a hospital.
