WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) - A 38-year-old Andover man has been sentenced to nearly 17 years in prison for a drunken driving crash that killed one person and injured another in Wichita on Thanksgiving in 2021. 

Garett Meyers pleaded guilty in December to involuntary manslaughter while driving under the influence and aggravated battery while DUI. Sedgwick County Judge Sean Hatfield sentenced him Thursday to 200 months, or 16 and 2/3 years. 

The crash happened at around 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving, November 25, 2021 at 13th and Hillside. Police said a small westbound SUV was stopped at the intersection when a truck rear-ended it, causing it to overturn.

The driver of the SUV, 65-year-old Leroy Grim, died at the scene. His 67-year-old female passenger suffered critical injuries. Meyers, who was driving the truck, was not hurt. 

Records show Meyers has a prior DUI conviction.

A previous version of this story incorrectly stated that Meyers is from Wichita.
