Man sentenced in crash that killed trainer's wife

ATLANTA (AP) - A former Georgia state trooper who pleaded guilty in a crash that killed the wife of an Atlanta Braves trainer has been sentenced to two years in prison.

Donald Crozier was also ordered Tuesday to serve eight years of probation and educate law enforcement on dangers and responsibilities associated with their jobs. He pleaded guilty Monday to vehicular homicide and violating his oath of office in the crash that killed 54-year-old Kathy Porter, wife of Atlanta Braves trainer Jeff Porter.

Authorities have said Crozier was riding with his lights and siren on when he slammed into a vehicle the Porters were riding in on their way to the Chick-fil-A Bowl on Dec. 31, 2011.

Crozier was put on administrative leave after the accident and was later fired.
