Driver In Restaurant Crash Sentenced To Prison

LAS VEGAS (KXNT/AP) — A driver who pleaded guilty to DUI charges after police say he plowed his car into a  restaurant last spring has been sentenced to 6 to 20 years in prison.

Twenty-year-old Gage James Lindsey choked up and apologized during a hearing Thursday and said he thanks God every day that nobody died in the crash.

Prosecutors say Lindsey was under the influence of prescription drugs, marijuana and synthetic marijuana when he crashed into the Egg & I restaurant on Sahara Avenue, west of the Las Vegas Strip, on April 1, 2013.

Ten people were injured.

Lindsey pleaded guilty in May to two charges of felony DUI causing substantial bodily harm. Prosecutors dropped four other charges as part of a plea deal.

Lindsey could have faced 32 to 80 years behind bars.
