UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (AP) - A Maryland man has been sentenced to 2 years in prison in a hit-and-run crash that killed a University of Maryland student from New York.

Thirty-year-old Liam Adepo of Hyattsville was also sentenced to 3 years of supervised probation at sentencing Friday in Prince George’s County Circuit Court.

He pleaded guilty in November to leaving a fatal accident scene in a plea agreement with prosecutors, who dropped other charges in exchange.

Adepo turned himself in on Jan. 18 last year, the day after police say he hit 22-year-old Cory Hubbard as he crossed a street mid-block at 1:30 a.m. Hubbard, of West Hampton Beach, New York, died soon after.

Prosecutors say Adepo was shown on surveillance video leaving a College Park pub and walking with difficulty shortly before the crash.
