August 25, 2017

A young man has been sentenced to 10 years in prison in a head-on collision that killed a 15-year-old girl in southwestern Indiana.

WFIE-TV reported 19-year-old Osiel Marroquin learned his punishment in Booneville Thursday after pleading guilty last month to charges including causing death while driving intoxicated. Marroquin said that he doesn’t remember details from the night of the crash and apologized.

He was charged after the Dec. 17 crash along Indiana 62 that killed Skylar Robinson. The Boonville High School student was one of two passengers in a car hit head-on by Marroquin’s sport-utility vehicle. The other passenger, an 18-year-old woman, suffered a traumatic brain injury.

Police say Marroquin was driving the wrong way along Indiana 62 in Warrick County. The Robinson family wants tougher laws for drunken driving cases.
