The 35-year-old Lakewood man, who killed two people after driving his vehicle into a crowded street festival while drunk, was sentenced to 15 years in prison Wednesday.
Timothy Spock, of Beach Parkway, faced up to 26 years after he pleaded guilty to aggravated vehicular homicide; vehicular homicide; and vehicular manslaughter.
The July 29 crash at the Dancin’ in the Street event in Cleveland killed Lakewood resident Mitchell Andelmo and Basil Bass of Cleveland, and injured two others.
According to the police report, the street on Clifton Boulevard was barricaded at West 117th Street and east of that location because of the Dancin’ in the Street festival. A vehicle was traveling eastbound on Clifton Boulevard and struck the barricade, drove over it and into a crowd, which was in a tented area.
The festival is one of Cleveland's largest LGBT fundraisers run by the AIDS Taskforce of Greater Cleveland.
The vehicle struck five people who were taken to MetroHealth Medical center for treatment — Bass and Andelmo later died as a result of their injuries.
A blood-alcohol test found that Spock had been drinking alcohol prior to the crash, according to police.
