Hit and run suspect gets 20 years for deaths of two motorcyclists

Twenty-four-year-old Park City, Illinois resident Sambath Pal was sentenced to 20 years of imprisonment at the Rock County Circuit Court for causing a hit and run accident that claimed the life of two motorcyclists in southern Wisconsin, an Associated Press article stated on October 2.

The victims were identified as 24-year-old Mitchell Vance and 18-year-old Devin Julius, both of Janesville, Wisconsin.

According to police authorities, Pal was operating a sport utility vehicle that swept past the median on Highway 14 near Janesville back in April, hitting two motorcycles that were traveling in a group of riders. Pal then left the scene of the accident, allegedly because he was shocked and terrified of the accident he caused.

Pal pleaded guilty to two counts of hit and run involving death.
