INDIANAPOLIS—The man who caused a wreck in Speedway that left a mother and daughter dead has been sentenced to 14 years in prison.

In March 24, 2018, 60-year-old Donna Rosebrough and her 86-year-old mother, Nola Spears, were killed at the intersection North Lynhurst Drive and Crawfordsville Road in Speedway.

Investigators say a Trailblazer driven by 45-year-old Carl Hill was going nearly 50 miles-per-hour over the speed limit when it ran a red light and slammed into the other vehicle. It was snowing at the time.

"The Speedway community experienced a devastating tragedy with the loss of Speedway residents Donna Rosebrough and Nola Spears," said Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry.

Hill faced two counts of Reckless Homicide and one count for being a habitual offender. He was sentenced Friday in Marion County Criminal Court.
