Arizona pastor gets jail in NM traffic fatality

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- The Arizona pastor who struck and killed a man changing a flat tire on the side of Interstate 40 has been sentenced to jail.

KRQE-TV reported that Wayne Salguero was sentenced Thursday to 45 days in jail after pleaded no contest to careless driving.

He was charged with vehicular homicide for veering off I-40 and hitting a deli delivery drive, 23-year-old Timothy Sheehan, in 2011.

Last month, however, prosecutors said Salguero was driving the speed limit and that there was no evidence he was on his cell phone.
