NASHVILLE (AP) — A Nashville man has been sentenced to 12 years in prison for crashing his car into a vehicle and killing a 3-year-old child inside.

Percy Thompson was sentenced Monday for vehicular homicide by intoxication and leaving the scene of an accident for the 2009 death of Darius Buchanan.

Prosecutors said Thompson's blood alcohol content measured 0.23 after the accident, nearly three times the legal limit.

He pleaded guilty Monday when he was set for trial.
