RAPID CITY, S.D. (KOTA TV) - The man responsible for a five-car crash last November in Rapid City has been sentenced to 10 years in the South Dakota State Penitentiary.

Chipps kept driving, causing the five-car crash near the intersection of Lacrosse and Anamosa.
One vehicle rolled and four people were injured.
In February, Chipps entered a guilty plea to one count of vehicular battery.
In addition to his prison sentence, Chipps was ordered to pay $140,000 in restitution.
