CHARLOTTE, N.C. -

A man who authorities say had cocaine in his system and was driving more than 100 mph when he crashed into another vehicle in February 2012 has been convicted of murder.

The Charlotte Observer reports the Mecklenburg County District Attorney's Office said a jury on Friday found 46-year-old Victor Moultry guilty of second-degree murder, felony possession of cocaine and misdemeanor hit and run. Moultry was sentenced to at least 17 years in prison.

Prosecutors say Moultry drove into the wrong lane of W.T. Harris Boulevard on Feb. 16, 2012 and hit a car. Moultry then went to Huntersville, where he rear-ended a truck driven by 53-year-old Paul Joseph Jones,

Moultry's car hit Jones' truck at more than 100 mph, sending it down a ravine. Jones died two days later.
