The driver in a horrific car crash that killed a 9-year-old girl in November has been has been sentenced to eight to 25 years in state prison, according to Phillyburbs.com.
Drew Bodden, 38, of Plumstead, was found guilty of third-degree murder in June for the high-speed crash that killed Holly Berry Huynh
Prosecutors said Bodden was driving more than 140 miles an hour north up the Rt. 611 Bypass the night before Thanksgiving when he slammed into the back of Suzanne Berry's Honda CRV.
Berry was driving her granddaughter home from a gynmastics class in the left lane at 60 to 70 miles an hour when Bodden slammed into her, prosecutors said.
The impact forced the Honda across the right lane, off the road and into the grassy area next to the Broad Street exit ramp, according to prosecutors.
The Honda was so damaged that rescuers had to cut both Holly and her grandmother from the wreckage, prosecutors said. Berry sustained a traumatic brain injury and is now paralyzed.
When Bodden testified in June, he said he did not see the Honda CRV driven by Suzanne Berry until "milliseconds" before impact. He also admitted that he added $5,000 worth of after market parts to his Ford Mustang Cobra to make it go faster.
