SCRANTON, Pa. (AP) - A Pennsylvania National Guardsman who caused a crash that killed another driver will spend up to eight years in prison.

WNEP reports (https://bit.ly/2oc5E2U) 32-year-old Adam Kovaleski pleaded guilty in January to homicide while driving under the influence.

He was sentenced to three to eight years on Thursday.

Police say Kovaleski’s blood-alcohol content was nearly four times the legal limit for driving and he was driving the wrong way when he crashed head-on into 55-year-old Timothy Kunis’ vehicle on Interstate 81 in 2015.

Kovaleski served in Iraq and Kuwait. The Carbondale native says his drinking problem and post-traumatic stress disorder could have contributed to the fatal crash.
