Man sentenced to 20 years in 2014 DWI crash that killed woman

HAYS COUNTY, TEXAS - A man has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for driving while intoxicated and killing a woman in a crash in Hays County back in 2014, according to officials.

Jason Floyd Tarr was leaving a golf course after having participated in a golf tournament on Sept. 29, 2014 when witnesses said they saw him driving aggressively, cutting off other drivers, tailgating and driving into the oncoming lanes of Slaughter and Brodie lanes before turning onto State Highway 1626 in Hays County. 

At some point, Tarr's pickup crossed over into the oncoming lane and struck a car driven by Nancy Sterling-Dalton, 60. Although the back end of Tarr's truck flipped into the air and the truck came to a rest on its side, Tarr escaped with only minor scrapes and bruises. Sterling-Dalton, however, was pinned inside her car and died on the scene.

After the crash, a test on Tarr's blood revealed he had an alcohol concentration of .102. He has been convicted of murder and intoxication assault.
