FAIRBANKS, Alaska — A 19-year-old Fairbanks driver who left the scene of a crash with a pedestrian has been sentenced to two and a half years in prison.
The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner (http://bit.ly/1frGZKH) reports Rashid Glasco on Sept. 16 was driving on Lathrop Street when he heard a bump and saw that he had struck a 7-year-old girl. He said in a statement that he became scared and took off.
Superior Court Judge Douglas Blankenship says Glasco didn't act with criminal negligence when he hit the girl but committed a crime when he took off.
Glasco pleaded guilty to leaving the scene and to possession of cocaine when he was arrested a week later.
The girl's mother says the girl has made a full recovery other than scarring on her face.
