Man involved in Minneapolis crash that injured 2 teenagers sentenced
The man who pleaded guilty to his involvement in a Minneapolis crash that injured two teenagers was sentenced Tuesday.
According to court records 49-year-old Steven Djuan Ross was sentenced to 33 months in prison.
Ross pleaded guilty in July to to two counts of criminal vehicular operation and one count of simple robbery.
Authorities say Ross carjacked a man’s SUV and took off with the vehicle on 17th Avenue. When he got to Lake Street, he tried to turn right but went through the intersection and hit a 19-year-old and her 14-year-old brother, seriously injuring both.
Ross then continued east on Lake Street where he smashed into a police car and eventually crashed into a light pole near Lake Street and 20th Avenue South. After crashing into the light pole, the SUV burst into flames and police had to pull Ross from the vehicle.
