An Alexandria man is facing seven years in prison for the death of a pedestrian in Ballston on Christmas Eve 2012.

Farhan Khan, 22, was sentenced Friday in Arlington Circuit Court for the death of Shabnam Motahhar-Tehrani, 32, who was killed in the accident at the corner of N. Glebe Road and Randolph Street, Arlnow.com reports. Khan was sentenced to 10 years in prison, with three years suspended. 

Witnesses said Khan was driving between 50-60 mph when he ran a red light and struck another vehicle. The collision caused his vehicle to spin out and hit Tehrani, who was standing on the sidewalk of Glebe Road. Khan had been cited eight times for previous moving violations, including for speeding the day before the fatal accident, Arlnow reported.
