LEAVENWORTH, Kan. (AP) — A 31-year-old Kansas City man has been sentenced to almost 50 years in prison for a fatal accident that occurred when he was fleeing from law enforcement officers. Leavenworth County Attorney Todd Thompson said in a news release Friday that Anthony Jay Dorsey was sentenced for second-degree murder after a deadly crash near Bonner Springs in September 2019. Prosecutors said a highway patrol trooper tried to stop Dorsey on Interstate 70 for an expired tag. Dorsey fled and eventually drove the wrong way on the interstate. His vehicle collided with a car driven by 19-year-old Nathan Pena, of Brookfield, Illinois, who died at the scene.
