ELKO, Nev. (AP) — A semi-truck driver who admitted he was speeding when he slammed into a car and tow truck on the side of a rural Nevada highway apologized to the families of three victims before he was sentenced to up to four years in prison.

Samuel Rosenbaum of Abingdon, Virginia pleaded guilty in March to three counts of involuntary manslaughter in the 2011 deaths of a Spokane, Washington couple, Michael and Marilyn Bogue, and Jesse Penegelly, the 20-year-old tow-truck driver from Wells.

Rosenbaum said he was running behind schedule when he ran into the back of a Buick Skylark and sent it flying into the tow truck along U.S. Highway 93 about 30 miles south of Wells.

Elko District Court Judge Al Kacin said Monday he'll have to serve a minimum of 19 months.
