26 year old Jonathon Nast of Damiansville has been sentenced to six months in jail for the 2014 fatal hit-and-run that claimed the life of 23 year old Lana Albert, of Edwardsville.
Albert reportedly left a bar in Breese and was wandering in and out of traffic around 2:00 a.m. on June 8, 2014 on Old U.S. Rt. 50 when she was hit by a truck driven by Nast. Nast then sold the truck to a scrap dealer before police were notified it had been in an accident.
Nast lost his license and was charged with failure to report a fatal accident and obstructing justice by destroying evidence.
This past Wednesday, Nast apologized for his actions and entered a negotiated guilty plea and was sentenced to six months in jail and ordered to pay a $2,500 fine.
