Waterloo teen enters Alford plea in hit and run case

Posted:

A Waterloo teenager accused in a deadly hit and run crash last year will be sentenced in a couple weeks.

Authorities say Dajour Sawyers was driving a stolen car and ran a red light in Altoona.

He crashed into another car, killing its driver.

Authorities say sawyers ran from the scene, but police found him later.

Sawyers entered an Alford plea, meaning he acknowledges there would be enough evidence to convict him if there was a trial.

Sentencing is scheduled for February 7th in Polk County.
