(AP) — An Arizona pastor who struck and killed a man changing a flat tire on the side of Interstate 40 has been sentenced to jail.

KRQE-TV reports that Wayne Salguero was sentenced Thursday to 45 days in jail after pleaded no contest to careless driving.

He was charged with vehicular homicide for veering off I-40 and hitting a McAlister’s Deli delivery driver, 23-year-old Timothy Sheehan, in 2011.
