Former NCAA champion runner gets prison for fatal crash
July 21, 2021
Ann Arbor, MI — A former NCAA champion runner has been sentenced to at least 40 months in prison for a drunken driving crash that killed a woman in southeastern Michigan. Boaz Kisang Cheboiywo pleaded no contest in June to causing a death while operating a vehicle while drunk. The 42-year-old native of Kenya was involved in a multi-vehicle crash in April in Ypsilanti Township, west of Detroit. Christen Knight of Canton was killed. Cheboiywo had a blood-alcohol level of 0.26, far above the legal limit for driving. He says he's “devastated” by what happened.
