AVON LAKE– A man was sentenced in Avon Lake Municipal Court Tuesday, in connection with a deadly crash on I-90, that claimed the life of a construction worker.

Anthony Rose, Jr. changed his plea to no contest to charges of assured clear distance and vehicular manslaughter. He was sentenced to 90 days in jail; 85 of those days are suspended. So, he’ll spend five days behind bars.

The 50-year-old Brecksville man was also ordered to pay a $750.00 fine and his driver’s license was suspended for a year.

The Sept. 12 crash killed Peter Maglis, 63, of Campbell, who worked for Athos Painting.
