BRATTLEBORO, Vt. (AP) - A 21-year-old Vermont man has apologized for driving drunk in a head-on crash that killed a woman last year.

Edward Class, of Vernon, was sentenced Tuesday to eight to 12 years in prison for his role in the June 8, 2013 crash that killed 22-year-old Tanya May of Readsboro. The sentence was suspended except for 3 ½ years that he’ll begin serving immediately. He’ll also spend 10 years on probation.

Class pleaded guilty to driving in a “grossly negligent manner.” He also was originally charged with drunken driving.

The Brattleboro Reformer (https://bit.ly/1tKBpRo ) reports that in court on Tuesday, Class said he was “extremely sorry.”

Class was driving a 2000 Nissan Maxima when he veered into the oncoming lane and hit a 2000 Jeep Cherokee. The driver of the Jeep suffered minor injuries.
