PORT ORCHARD, Wash. (AP) — A Bremerton man who lost his license for causing a 2010 crash that killed a 6-month old boy has been sentenced to four years in prison for causing another wreck in January.

The Kitsap Sun reports  that the most recent crash left the other driver with a head injury.

Sidney Wright was attempting to pass several cars on a blind curve in January when he struck an SUV head-on. Reports say he was traveling about 80 mph in a 45 mph zone. In the 2010 crash, he was texting his wife when he rear-ended a car that had stopped to make a left turn.

After the January crash, Wright ran away but a police dog found him hiding in the brush.

Wright pleaded guilty on June 1 to a vehicular assault charge and hit and run.
