MANHATTAN, Kan. (WIBW) -- "I'm sorry for what happened. If I could go back in time and change it, I would," said Daniel Nitchman, 38, just prior to being sentenced for the 2013 wreck that killed an Abilene woman, according to KMAN.
Nitchman, who lives in Missouri, received a 12 month sentence and was granted 12 months of probation after that following his conviction for vehicular homicide in March.
Nitchman was driving westbound on I-70 in September 2013 when he fell asleep, causing his truck to drift off the road into a ditch. He struck 31-year-old Samantha Coleman, who was standing next to her broken down vehicle. Coleman died as a result.
