CALDWELL -- A Caldwell man connected with a crash that killed a Nampa teenager was sentenced to ten years in prison on a vehicular manslaughter charge.

Canyon County prosecutors say 22-year-old Freddy Camacho-Quezada will serve one and a half years fixed before being eligible for parole, and an additional eight and a half indeterminate years.

In Tuesday's sentencing, Camacho-Quezada's drivers license will also be suspended for five consecutive years after he's released from prison.

THE CRASH

Police say Camacho-Quezada was driving his car at over 100 miles per hour when he crashed another vehicle carrying nine people last December. Out of those nine, ranging in ages from 14 to 22, Nampa teenager Stephanie Rodriguez was killed.

Camacho-Quezada was then booked into Canyon County Jail on vehicular manslaughter charges and police believe alcohol was a factor in the crash.

On Tuesday, county prosecutors say the court likened Camacho-Quezada's crime to shooting a gun into an open crowd.
