BUTTE, Mont. (AP) - A 20-year-old Twin Bridges man has been sentenced in a 2013 drunken-driving rollover crash that killed a passenger.

Tanner W. Eggers received a 20-year sentence Monday for vehicular homicide while driving under the influence, but 15 years were suspended.

The Montana Standard reports (https://bit.ly/1zn8Xpk ) that Eggers had pleaded guilty to the charge earlier.

Authorities say Eggers was behind the wheel in a rollover crash in which 19-year-old passenger Michael Pfertsh died on Sept. 8, 2013.

Eggers also was sentenced to serve six months on three counts of negligent endangerment. That time will be served concurrently with the vehicular homicide sentence. He also was fined for a seat belt violation and ordered to pay restitution.
