Prison for Hitting Deaf Pedestrian

An Ohio judge gave a man 7 years behind bars for hitting and killing Fiery Hayes who was deaf. David M. Johnson of Columbus passed out at the wheel and ran his minivan onto a sidewalk, hiting Hayes from behind. The 43-year-old could not have heard the van coming his way. Johnson said painkillers had made Johnson drowsy.
