A Lancaster man has been sentenced to 25 years in state prison for killing an 11-year-old girl in a hitand-run crash this summer, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office announced.

Deputy District Attorney David Delgado said Eduardo Medrano Jr., 25, was sentenced yesterday. On Sept. 6, Medrano pleaded no contest to one count of gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated.

His girlfriend, Alicia Torres, 23, pleaded no contest on the same day to one count of accessory after the fact, knowledge of crime. She was sentenced yesterday to three years summary probation.

The crash occurred just after midnight on July 18. Medrano drove through a red light on 20th Street East and collided with a vehicle causing Emily T. to be ejected from the victim's vehicle, the prosecutor said.

Following the collision, Medrano fled the scene. While Medrano was at large, Torres lied to police about her knowledge of Medrano's whereabouts.

Case MA071752 was investigated by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, Lancaster Station.
