HUGO, Colo. (AP) — A Louisiana teen charged in a deadly hit-and-run crash in eastern Colorado has been sentenced to two years of probation.

KUSA-TV in Denver reports (http://on9news.tv/VLLJIm ) he also was sentenced Friday to 300 hours of public service and can't drive for two years. The charges to which he pleaded guilty weren't available late Friday.

Prosecutors say the teen from Sulphur, La., was driving a semitrailer to a competition in Wyoming last year when he hit two Texas women who were changing a tire on the side of Interstate 70 near Limon (LY'-mun). The crash killed Shun Jones of Carrolton and Amanda Omo-Iyamu of Balch Springs.

The boy's father is facing charges alleging he drove the teen away from the scene and said he, not his son, had been driving the semitrailer.
