A Germantown man was sentenced Monday to 14 months in prison after the car he was driving while drunk fatally struck another man who was pushing his stalled moped on the Key Bridge last year.
D.C. Superior Court judge Gerald I. Fisher sentenced Anthony L. Randolph, 41, in connection with the Feb. 27, 2011, accident. In November, Randolph pleaded guilty to negligent homicide, operating while impaired and leaving the scene of a collision that caused personal injury after Randolph’s vehicle hit Eliester Pineda-Medrano of Arlington.
Prosecutors say that Pineda-Medrano, 23, was having trouble with his moped and had begun pushing it in the right lane of the bridge when Randolph’s Mercury Mariner struck him. Randolph then left the scene. A bystander recorded Randolph’s tags and notified police.
Randolph was later stopped by police and failed a field sobriety test and refused to take a breath test.
