Man Who Killed Landscape Worker with Car Gets Probation

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A Wichita man who struck and killed a landscape worker with his car will serve three years of probation.  Taylor D. Schrader was sentenced Thursday for the 2013 death of 47-year-old Terry Wright. He died when Schrader's car jumped a curb and hit Wright, who was doing landscaping along a street. Schrader pleaded guilty in January to involuntary manslaughter while driving under the influence.  According to the Wichita Eagle, Schrader's attorney claimed Schrader passed out after taking too much oxycodone, which was prescribed by a doctor for a medical condition. He also had smoked marijuana the night before to ease the paint.  Wright, an employee of Suburban Landscape Management, died at the scene.  Schrader is no longer driving and is undergoing long-term drug treatment.
