Man gets 35 years in prison for hit-and-run crash that left 3 women dead


LARGO, Florida — A man has been sentenced to 35 years in prison for Tampa Bay area hit-and-run crash that killed three women.

A Pinellas County judge sentenced 28-year-old Marquice Lamonz Anderson on Tuesday after he pleaded guilty to three counts of vehicular homicide, driving with a revoked license and leaving the scene of an accident.

Police say Anderson was driving a rented Chrysler 200 the wrong way down a St. Petersburg street in June 2014 when he crashed into a Saturn with three female occupants. Anderson fled but turned himself in four days later.

Officials say two of the women — 23-year-old Briana Lequinda Campbell and 21-year-old Jamesia Chera Santoria Lang — died at the scene. The Saturn's driver, 25-year-old Grace Lashawn Collier, died a day after the crash at a Tampa hospital.
