Palmdale man sentenced for RV deaths

PALMDALE, Calif. Eyewitness News obtained the evidence video taken from an L.A. County Sheriff's deputy's dashboard camera. It shows 43-year-old Christopher Hall driving a stolen motor home in the Antelope Valley in 2005.

Hall had already crashed into several vehicles, killing one woman, when deputies began chasing him.

He narrowly missed hitting a deputy, then slammed into a car containing four young people. A 16-year-old boy in the car died. Seconds later, the motor home flipped over and Hall was taken into custody.

At trial, the defense raised questions about Hall's mental state. The judge said Hall's mental state was affected only because he had been drinking.

The jury found Hall to be sane at the time of the crimes.
