ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) - An Atlantic City man who was driving drunk when he caused a fatal wrong-way crash has been sentenced to six years in prison.

Atlantic County prosecutors say Ishiah Monroe had pleaded guilty to vehicular homicide charges last November.

The April 2014 crash occurred in the area of Massachusetts and Grammercy avenues in Atlantic City.

Prosecutors say Monroe was driving the wrong way down a one-way street when he ran a red light and crashed into another vehicle. Monroe’s front-seat passenger, 24-year-old Nicholas Ingargiola of Galloway Township, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Monroe and his rear-seat passenger, 27-year-old Theodore Miller III of Winchester, Virginia, were treated for undisclosed injuries. The driver and sole occupant of the other vehicle, 51-year-old Atlantic City resident Vong Doan, was not hurt.
