Terrelwin Jones was driving 89 mph when he crashed into traffic on the Dallas North Tollway.

The man responsible for the crash that killed a 16-year-old Jesuit student in 2018 was sentenced to 10 years probation Wednesday.

Terrelwin Jones, 33, pleaded guilty to manslaughter and failure to stop and render aid in the crash on the Dallas North Tollway that killed Guy Delaney, who was a sophomore at Jesuit. The crash occurred March 7, 2018, around 10:15 p.m.

Delaney and his father were stalled in a work zone. Jones was driving 89 mph when he ran into the traffic, scattering cars, including the Delaneys’ car, across the road. The Delaneys’ vehicle caught fire from the collision.

The judge decided Jones must spend each Thanksgiving and Christmas of his sentence at the Dallas County jail, the Dallas Morning News reported. If Jones fails to adhere to the rules of his probation, he could be sent to prison for two to 20 years.

Guy’s classmates created the Guy Delaney Class of 2020 Memorial Endowment Fund in his honor.
