Durant man sentenced to jail for 2010 hit and run

DURANT, OK-- A Durant man will serve 5 years in jail, after pleading no contest to a hit and run accident that killed an 8-year-old boy two years ago.

23-year-old Derrick Shawn Weaver appeared in Bryan County court last Wednesday, for the death of Jovani Lopez Santibanez.

In October of 2010, Santibanez was riding a skateboard when he was hit by Weaver's truck.

Weaver was not intoxicated at the time of the accident, but later said, he panicked and fled the scene.

As part of a plea agreement he'll serve only half of his ten year sentence.
