FLINT, Mich. (AP) - A young man has been sentenced to at least five years in prison for a drunken wrong-way crash that killed a woman in Genesee County.

Zachary Parker shed tears Thursday as he told a judge that he wishes he could trade spots with the victim, Mariah Bailey-Collins, who was killed in February.

The 19-year-old Parker was driving the wrong way on U.S. 23 in Mundy Township. He was 18 at the time, and his blood-alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit. Bailey-Collins’ son and new husband were injured in the crash.

Parker will be eligible for parole after five years. His maximum sentence is 15 years in prison.
