Local Man Sentenced For Striking And Killing Highway Worker

Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction

A Columbus man has been sentenced to five years in prison for killing a construction worker while driving impaired on I-70 near Hilliard-Rome Road last September. 

Prosecutors say Edward Torres was high on drugs and alcohol when he struck and killed 59-year-old Steve Cook. Torres will also serve three years' probation after his release.

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
