ANCHORAGE (AP) -- A driver who injured a passenger in another vehicle while eluding police and Alaska State Troopers in a stolen van has been sentenced to 11 years in prison, the Anchorage district attorney's office says.

Moses Andrew, 33, drove at speeds exceeding 100 mph on Sept. 5, 1998, down the Parks and Glenn highways, charging documents said.

Near Eagle River, Andrew struck a compact car from behind, sending the car into a ditch.

The car's passenger, Michael Hartman, was hospitalized for a week after a blood clot was removed from his brain, authorities said.
