Daniel Leigh Crane, 50, pleaded guilty to charges of homicide by vehicle in connection with the August 2016 accident. He received a two-year sentence, including 60 days in jail and the rest on probation.
As a condition of Crane’s probation, Georgia judge Rusty Carlisle ordered Crane to carry around a photo of the teen he killed, Summer Lee, as well as a copy of the statement her mother read at the sentencing, according to reports.
Lee, who was a senior in high school, was killed when Crane was driving northbound on I-75 and struck her SUV, pushing her car into five other vehicles, reports said.
Seven others suffered non-life threatening injuries in the collision, according to reports.
Lee was reportedly well-known as an athlete in her community.
“Summer was a beautiful girl, with long flowing hair, big blue eyes and a smile that was radiant,” her obituary reads. “She had a big personality that was spunky and strong-willed. Her loving and free spirit is what most people will remember.”
