April 17, 2013 at 2:14 PM

KNOXVILLE, Tenn., April 17 (UPI) -- A man was convicted Wednesday in a hit-and-run automobile accident that killed three people in Knoxville, Tenn.

A jury found Curtis Scott Harper, 23, guilty of three counts of vehicular homicide, DUI, reckless endangerment, leaving the scene of an accident and evidence tampering in the May 2012 accident, court documents said.

In closing statements Tuesday Assistant District Attorney Sarah Keith told the jury Harper was drunk and speeding when he struck Nelzon Soto, 45, Elaine Thornell, 24, and Thornell's unborn daughter, and has shown no remorse for their deaths, the Knoxville News Sentinel reported.

The report did not indicate the punishment Harper faces after his conviction.
