On Sept. 28, 2018, Ryan Geary was arrested after an accident that left two women critically injured.

According to officers on scene that day, Geary fled his vehicle after hitting two women standing off the roadway near New Somerset and then hitting a parked car. He was later found and arrested that evening.

One of the victims, Beth Klink, stood up in court yesterday and forgave Geary for his actions before he was sentenced.

Geary faced two counts of vehicular assault, one count of driving under suspension, two counts of failing to stop for officers, and one count of possession.

He changed his former plea of not guilty and has been sentenced to 3 years of mandatory imprisonment, a 5-year license suspension, and 3 years post-mandatory control.

Geary also is required to pay restitution to Klink up to $200,000.
