COLUMBUS (AP) -- The driver of a central Ohio hospital shuttle bus that struck and killed one researcher and injured another has been sentenced to two years of probation and 80 hours of community service.
   A Franklin County judge sentenced 63-year-old Karl Beem on Wednesday after finding him guilty of vehicular manslaughter.
   Police say researchers David Newsom and Peter White were hit from behind while walking along a road at Nationwide Children's Hospital in May 2013. They were walking along a road where the sidewalk was blocked due to construction. Newsom died from his injuries.
