Tart sentenced to prison for fatal crash

LILLINGTON, N.C.

The sentence came after Tart pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter Monday.

Officials estimate Tart was going at least 65 miles per hour in the Dunn Wal-Mart's parking lot when he crashed, killing Moore.

The state contended the accident was intentional. However, defense lawyers said he had a seizure as part of his epilepsy.

Just before sentencing, Tart apologized and, with tears in his eyes, said he loved his girlfriend.

Moore's father spoke after the sentencing.

"It adds a little closure, but it will never be the same," said Mike Moore.

Both families left the courtroom in tears.
