Bridge painter was killed in August when a car swerved during an accident.
(Avon Lake) - A Brecksville man will serve five days in jail for a September crash on I-90 that killed a painter working on the new Nagle Road interchange.
50-year-old Anthony Rose was driving west on I-90 in Avon when police say the car in front of him braked. Rose hit that car and then swerved through orange barrels, hitting and killing 63-year-old Peter Maglis.
Rose had pleaded guilty to vehicular manslaughter and failure to keep an assured clear distance.
In court, NewsChannel 5 reports that Rose apologized numerous times and an Avon police officer testified that Rose stopped at the crash scene and was emotional and remorseful.
Rose was given a 90 day jail sentence, but 85 were suspended because the judge felt there were no aggravating circumstances in the case. The judge also noted that Rose was not on a cellphone.
Rose was also fined and also given community service.
