WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) - A 24-year-old Wichita man has been sentenced to 22 years in prison for his role in a crash that killed a passenger as he fled law enforcement during a 2023 traffic stop.

In the early morning hours of January 28, 2023, authorities say Harry Rediker failed to stop during an attempted traffic stop on Kellogg. During an escape attempt, his car left the roadway at Hoover and Taft and hit a utility pole. The crash resulted in Rediker and his passenger, 38-year-old Lindsey Garmon, being taken to the hospital. While Rediker's injuries were minor, Garmon later died.

He pled guilty to first-degree murder, flee and elude, and interference with law enforcement charges in May of this year.

In addition to his sentence, Judge Tyler Roush ordered Rediker to pay a little over $10,000 to Evergy for repairing the damage done to the power pole.
