WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) - A man has been given 25 years in prison for crashing into a Waterloo house and fatally injuring a sleeping occupant.

Court records say 26-year-old Weadeh Tucker pleaded guilty Thursday to vehicular homicide while driving drunk. Tucker apologized at his hearing and asked forgiveness from the family of 84-year-old Milo VanSchoyck, who died a few days after the crash last summer.

Police say Tucker told investigators he had been drinking when he blacked out behind the wheel of a sport utility vehicle early on June 29. Police say he awoke to yelling just before slamming into a wall of the house.

Tucker also was ordered to pay $150,000 in restitution.
