A Mid-Missouri truck driver has been sentenced to 9 years in prison for causing a highway construction zone crash in Indianapolis that killed a woman and her 18-month-old twin daughters.

A Marion County judge ordered the prison term Monday for 58-year-old Bruce Pollard of Sturgeon, Missouri, after he pleaded guilty but mentally ill to reckless homicide and other charges for the July 2019 crash.

Pollard was driving a semitrailer that prosecutors said was going 65 mph and didn't begin to brake until the truck hit the first of several vehicles slowed for an Interstate 465 construction zone.
