April 7, 2011

A hit-and-run driver was sentenced to 18 years in prison Wednesday in Indianapolis. Roger Ordonez pleaded guilty to charges related to the crash that killed 81-year-old Lola Herman. Ordonez had a blood alcohol level of 0.24 when he ran a red light last October, slamming into Herman’s vehicle at West 16th Street and Martin Luther King Drive as she headed home after volunteering at Riley Hospital for Children.
