Teen sentenced to 60 days in jail, probation for hit-and-run death of Wichita woman
WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) - A 19-year-old has been sentenced to 60 days in jail followed by two years' probation for the hit-and-run death of a Wichita woman last year.
The Sedgwick County district attorney's office said Bricetin Wedel will be subject to 58 months in prison if he violates probation. He pleaded guilty in August to misdemeanor vehicular homicide as well as felony and misdemeanor counts of leaving the scene of an accident. His 60-day jail sanction started last Thursday, jail records show.
The incident happened the evening of Saturday, June 5, 2021 outside of Central Standard Brewing in Old Town. Police said 26-year-old Lynny Poell was out with friends and was crossing the street when she was struck by Wedel’s car at a high rate of speed.
Poell died at the hospital six days later.
The vehicle was found at a hotel at 36th and Rock Road the day after the hit-and-run. Wedel was later arrested.
