Gregory Creech, 60, from Trotwood, was sentenced in a Montgomery County court Monday to 54 months in prison for vehicular homicide and six months for misdemeanor OVI after being found guilty of both charges November 9.

Creech was found guilty of driving his SUV southbound on James H. McGee Boulevard near the intersection of Philadelphia Drive in Dayton on Dec. 10, 2015 when he struck and killed 58-year-old Darryl Lynch of Dayton.

Lynch was struck from behind. He was dragged by Creech’s vehicle approximately 100 feet after the impact.

Creech was found to have cocaine, Fentanyl, and morphine in his system at the time of the crash, according to Montgomery County Prosecuting Attorney Mat Heck.

The two terms in prison will be served congruently.
