A McLean County man convicted in a crash that killed three people has received his sentencing.

Dylan Howard was sentenced to 20 years in prison on Monday for three counts of 2nd Degree Manslaughter, one count of 2nd Degree Assault, one count of 1st Degree Wanton Endangerment, and Operating a Motor Vehicle Under the Influence of a Controlled Substance.

The charges stemmed from a triple-fatality crash that happened back in March, claiming the lives of Howard's girlfriend and her daughter, in addition to another man, Joshua Fox.

The crash happened on KY 81 in McLean County. According to official documents, Howard was found to be driving under the influence of narcotics at the time of the crash.

Howard's vehicle then hit Fox's vehicle, which was following behind the dump truck, head-on.

Wow!!!! It's cold!!!! After a trace of snow in Evansville and some higher amounts to the south, we're waking up to temperatures in the mid to upper teens across the Tri-State. Thankfully, road crews did a fantastic job treating the roads to keep conditions from getting slick. However, the northerly winds gusting as high as 15 to 20 mph has dropped wind chill values into the single digits and even below zero in our western communities. There won't be much of an improvement in temperatures this afternoon. With the strong northerly wind flow and dry skies our highs will only reach the mid to upper 20s. Winds will stay quite breezy keeping the wind chill factor in place through the day.
