CINCINNATI -- A Hamilton County judge sentenced a man to 11 years in prison Wednesday for killing a teenage pedestrian in a hit-and-run collision. 

Lawrence Dangerfield, 54, was speeding when he hit 17-year-old Asia Denson as she tried to cross Reading Road in Bond Hill on Jan. 18, 2015. Dangerfield didn't stop. He was driving with a suspended license. Denson died later that night. 

In addition to the prison sentence, the judge issued another suspension fo Dangerfield's license and ordered him to pay more than $6,000 in restitution. 

Dangerfield spent about a year on the run after a grand jury indicted him in Denson's death. Authorities arrested him in Delaware in 2016.
