PITTSBURGH (AP) - A man has been sentenced to five to 10 years in what authorities said was a drunken-driving crash that killed a 6-year-old western Pennsylvania girl last year.

Twenty-two-year-old Travis Grayson pleaded guilty in Allegheny County to homicide by vehicle, involuntary manslaughter, aggravated assault, driving under the influence and reckless endangerment.

Authorities said the Millvale resident was going 85 mph when he lost control of his car in September 2015 and hit Ava Lynn Campbell and her mother in front of a neighbor’s home. The girl’s mother survived.

Prosecutors said Grayson told police that he had consumed at least 10 beers before the accident and had smoked a bowl of marijuana earlier in the day.
