Oklahoma brothers convicted in deadly hit-and-run crash sentenced to prison


ROGERS COUNTY, Okla. – Two brothers convicted in a deadly hit-and-run crash were sentenced to prison Friday afternoon.

Gage Shriver, 21, and Dakota Shriver, 23, were convicted of killing Noelle New and critically injuring her friend, Maranda Talley back in 2015.

Officials say the two brothers were arguing when Dakota, the passenger, hit Gage, who was driving, striking pedestrians New and Talley.

They then drove away from the crash site without immediately calling 911, reports the Tulsa World.

In September, Dakota was found guilty of being an accessory to leaving the scene of a fatal crash, accessory to an injury crash, obstruction and second-degree murder.

Gage was found guilty of manslaughter as well as leaving the scene of a fatal crash, leaving the scene of an injury crash, DUI with great bodily injury, leaving the scene of an accident with property damage, failure to report a crash and obstruction.

Officials say Gage had a blood alcohol concentration of 0.023 that was taken more than seven hours after the crash. Gage was 19 at the time of the crash.

A jury had recommended a prison sentence of 25 years each.

Friday afternoon, Fox 23 reports a judge sentenced each of the brothers to 25 years in prison, which is included to run concurrent with their other charges.
