WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) - A Massachusetts man who was driving drunk when he struck and killed a security guard walking home from work has been sentenced to two years in jail.

The Telegram & Gazette reports that 23-year-old Vincent Green, of West Boylston, was sentenced Monday after pleading guilty in the January 2016 death of Frank Jeffrey Call.

Prosecutors say Green had several drinks at two bars and a private home before striking the 56-year-old Call, whose body was found by a Worcester city sanding truck in the early hours of the morning. Green then drove away from the scene.

Investigators used pickup truck debris found at the scene to track down Green.

Green’s attorney says client is remorseful and had a “limited criminal history” in arguing for a lighter sentence.
