man sentenced to prison for fatal DUI crash

A man from Charleston was sentenced to up to ten years in prison on Monday for being involved in a drunk driving crash that resulted in the death of a motorcyclist.

The accident occurred last September on MacCorkle Avenue. The man was driving a car when he slammed into the back of a motorcycle. The man on the motorcycle died shortly after the accident, and the Charleston man was found to have been drinking prior to the crash.

The man pled guilty to drunk driving and was held in jail for three months. He will soon begin serving his prison sentence, and he has expressed remorse and regret for his actions.
