Brian Anthony Woods, the Lafayette man who was charged with driving over his former girlfriend, was sentenced Friday to 15 years in prison, The Associated Press reported.

Authorities have said that Woods, 27, ran over the woman at Sowela Technical Community College in February 2012.

He was originally charged with multiple crimes that included rape, simple burglary and unauthorized entry of an inhabited dwelling, but those charges were dropped, and Woods pleaded no contest to attempted second-degree murder in November.

As part of his sentence, he will also have to pay his former girlfriend’s medical expenses and will not be allowed to contact her.

Police ID man killed in hit-and-run in Iberia Parish

State Police Sunday identified the man killed in a hit-and-run wreck and arrested the other driver, who left the scene.

Gerald Minnick, 22, of Abbeville, was killed in the wreck Saturday on La. 88 near New Horizons Drive in Iberia Parish, Master Trooper Brooks David said Sunday in a news release.

Troopers arrested Virgil Bryant III, 24, of New Iberia, hours after the start of the investigation.

A preliminary investigation revealed that Minnick, in a Ford F-150 pickup truck, was headed east on La. 88 around 6 p.m. Saturday.

He drove across the westbound lane and struck a silver BMW that was parked on the shoulder of the road.

After the crash, the Ford truck continued to travel east, driving off of the road and across a ditch. The pickup crashed into a utility pole and Minnick, who was not wearing a seat belt, was ejected, David said.

Minnick was pronounced dead at the scene by the Iberia Parish Coroner’s Office, David said.

The silver BMW left the scene after the crash. About six hours into the investigation, troopers found an unoccupied silver 1999 BMW in a trailer park, not far from the scene of the crash.

Bryant admitted his involvement in the crash when troopers questioned him, David said.

Troopers booked Bryant into the Iberia Parish Jail on counts of hit-and-run driving and no insurance.
