PITTSFIELD, Mass. (AP) - A Rhode Island man prosecutors say caused a fatal car crash in western Massachusetts last year has pleaded guilty and been sentenced to time already served.

William Lowe of Pawtucket, Rhode Island, was sentenced in Berkshire Superior Court on Tuesday to two years in jail, with one year suspended, and then given credit for the year he has already spent behind bars awaiting trial.

The Berkshire Eagle (https://bit.ly/1uuautq ) reports that he pleaded guilty to vehicular homicide, operating to endanger and possessing an open container of alcohol.

Police say the 35-year-old Lowe was driving 70 miles per hour in a 45 zone in Williamstown on Nov. 24 when his SUV crossed the centerline and struck a car driven by 64-year-old Lawrence George of Pownal, Vermont. The 65-year-old George died at the scene.
