Man sentenced in crash that killed trainer’s wife
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.
