A suburban Barrington native has been sentenced to two years of house arrest for a hit-and-run crash that killed two British businessmen in south Florida.

A Broward County judge today sentenced Ryan LeVin, 36, after he pleaded guilty to two counts of vehicular homicide and leaving the scene of a fatal crash.

LeVin must also never drive again and must immediately pay a confidential settlement in a wrongful death lawsuit.

Authorities say LeVin was driving a Porsche at a high rate of speed in Fort Lauderdale in February 2009, when he lost control and hit two pedestrians.
