TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A Tucson man is going to prison for 15 years for the hit-and-run death of a veteran Sun Tran bus driver.

Enqrique Hernandez was sentenced Friday after pleading guilty to manslaughter, driving under the influence, and leaving the scene of an accident.

Hernandez originally faced a second degree murder charge for the crash that killed John Akers last May.

Akers was hit near Mission and Irvington while riding his bike to work. Police arrested Hernandez about a week after the crash.
