A state judge sentenced Hawaiian Telcom employee Troy Matsui to 10 months in jail for causing the death of a motorcyclist in a traffic crash two years ago in front of the Kaaawa 7-Eleven Store.

Matsui, 42, pleaded no contest to misdemeanor, third-degree negligent homicide in January.

Mark Lamm, 49, died in the May 17, 2009, collision caused when Matsui turned his company truck in front of Lamm from the opposite direction of traffic. Lamm's passenger, his then-10-year-old daughter, suffered a broken leg. Lamm's wife, who was on a motorcycle behind him, was not injured.

Lamm's wife and daughter sued Hawaiian Telcom and agreed last year to an out-of-court settlement.
