CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

An Iowa man charged in a deadly wreck that killed a Cedar Falls woman faces up to 75 years in prison.

27-year-old Austin Hansen, of Reinbeck, was sentenced Monday to 25 years in prison for the 2010 crash that killed his passenger, 26-year-old Kaley Kennison.

Hansen was convicted by a judge last month of vehicular homicide. Authorities say he was driving drunk when crashed his pickup truck into a retaining wall.

A judge ordered Hansen's prison time be added to his sentences for state and federal drug crimes stemming from his role in a meth ring.
