MILWAUKEE (AP) -- A Wisconsin man who crashed into an Uber car, killing three passengers and injuring the driver, has been sentenced to 39 years in prison.

Twenty-four-year-old Jasen Randhawa was sentenced Friday. As part of his sentence, he'll also be under supervision for 16 years.

Randhawa, of Mequon, pleaded guilty in February to three counts of reckless homicide and one count of reckless injury.

Authorities say he was speeding when he ran a red light and slammed into the Uber car in October. He allegedly told a friend he was drunk, and turned himself in the next day.

Thirty-year-old Ashley Sawatzke, 32-year-old Amy Taylor and 35-year-old Lindsey Cohen were killed in the crash. The three women lived in Chicago and in were in Milwaukee for the weekend.
