LOS ANGELES (KTLA) – A man who rammed his car into two men that resulted in each victim losing limbs was sentenced Wednesday to five years and four months in state prison, according to a news release from the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.
Terrence Conrad Meeks, 40, of Paramount, pleaded no contest in June to getting behind the wheel of his BMW at about 3:30 a.m. on March 10 and crashing into the two victims.
According to investigators, a fight broke out inside Sam’s Hofbrau in the 900 block of Olympic Boulevard between Meeks and two Hispanic men.
The altercation escalated and then spilled outside.
That’s when Meeks drove his BMW into a parked Mini Cooper, pinning two men standing in front of the car, according to the DA’s Office.
Paramedics rushed the victims to a nearby hospital, where they were treated for critical injuries.
The force of the crash severed both legs of one victim and crushed the right leg of the other victim so badly it had to be amputated.
In exchange for his plea, the judge dismissed one count of driving with .08 percent blood alcohol causing injury, according to the DA’s Office.
