WEST CHESTER, Pa. (AP) - A southeastern Pennsylvania man is heading to prison in a drunken driving crash that killed two teenagers earlier this year.

Twenty-six-year-old Thomas Muir was sentenced Thursday to 18 to 36 years behind bars in the February wreck that killed 19-year-old Miles Hannagan and his 16-year-old sister, Charlotte.

Muir told the victims’ parents in the courtroom he has no excuse for his actions.

Prosecutors say the Media man’s blood alcohol level was twice the legal limit as he wheeled his pickup truck in Chester County. They say his wild driving drew a series of 911 calls, but police couldn’t catch him.

Authorities say his pickup got up to 98 mph before it slammed into a minivan on Route 100 in Exton, killing the siblings and injuring their parents.
