A Bronx man was sentenced Thursday for a 2020 car crash that killed his three passengers on the Cross County Parkway.
Yordany Bautista-Hernandez, was sentenced from 2 ½ to 7 ½ years in prison after pleading guilty to manslaughter.
Authorities say the 20-year-old was driving 119 mph when his car struck a guardrail in Mount Vernon and rolled over.
Bautista-Hernandez also expressed sorrow as to what happened.
His attorney said it was a difficult day for all.
‘What I witnessed today was one of the saddest, most emotional exchange of forgiveness, anger and hurt, all together. And my client was very remorseful and he's going to have this pain with him, after the sentence he received today," says defense attorney Darnell Crosland.
Judge James McCarty said he appreciated the defendant accepted a high degree of remorse and accepted responsibility for his actions but said the impact of those actions cannot be measured.
