A man was sentenced on Monday to 10 years in for hijacking and crashing a fuel tanker truck into a Waterloo home in August of 2020. The Black Hawk County Attorney's Office says 26-year-old Dakota Luck was sentenced for First Degree Theft of over $10,000, Reckless use of fire or explosives, Possession of marijuana, and Reckless driving. Luck pleaded guilty to stealing and crashing the truck in July after he was arrested and charged last year for the crash that spilled thousands of gallons of diesel fuel and forced neighbors to evacuate from their homes. On August 20, 2020, Luck crashed a semi into a ditch at Kwik Trip's fuel blending facility on Ridgeway Ave, where he was an employee. Records stated that he was acting erratically, shed his clothing, and was running around.
