NEW YORK — A speeding driver convicted of crashing into a car taking expectant parents to a New York City hospital, killing the couple and their baby, has been sentenced to 25 years to life in prison.

Julio Acevedo (ah-seh-VAY'-doh) was sentenced Monday after being found guilty of manslaughter and criminally negligent homicide.

Prosecutors estimate the 46-year-old driver from Brooklyn was going 70 mph — more than twice the legal speed limit — when he smashed into a livery car in March 2013.

The crash killed Nachman (NAHK'-muhn) and Raizy Glauber (RAY'-zee GLOW'-bur). Their newborn son died the next day.

Acevedo fled the scene and was later arrested in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.

Acevedo's family described him as a dedicated family man who quit his job to become a stay-at-home father.
