VIDEO: Hamler man sentenced to 25 years for killing 2 on I-75
A Hamler man who killed two people in an Interstate 75 crash is going to prison.
“His choices led to the destruction of so many lives,” said Lisa Krzykwa, whose daughter Kassidi died in the crash. “Her world of endless possibilities was endless.”
Luderman, 25, appeared Thursday in the courtroom of Wood County Common Pleas Judge Joel Kuhlman.
He was traveling southbound on I-75 near Cygnet Road around 10 p.m. on April 3 when he struck a 2003 Dodge Dakota in the rear with his 2018 Chevy Malibu.
The Dodge then traveled across the center median and struck two vehicles in the northbound lane before catching fire.
“This was not an accident,” said Nick Jones, whose son Andrew was driving the Dodge and died in the crash. (Video by J.D. Pooley/Sentinel-Tribune)
