RACINE, WI (WTAQ) - A Racine man will spend six years in prison for killing a female passenger in a hit-and-run motorcycle crash.

At a sentencing hearing, a circuit judge called 27-year-old Brandon Seibert a “train wreck waiting to happen.”

Prosecutors said Seibert crashed his motorcycle in a construction zone and kept going. A young mother attending UW-Parkside, 24-year-old Melissa Corona, was killed. The crash happened in September of last year.

Authorities said Seibert was speeding at the time – and he did not have a valid driver’s license. He pleaded guilty to felony fatal hit-and-run, and two misdemeanor counts of causing death while driving without a license, and reckless injury. That last charge was reduced from negligent homicide as part of a plea deal.

Seibert must spend 10 years under extended supervision when he’s released from prison – and he must pay at $2,500 fine.
