A 24-year-old Clymer man was sentenced to serve 4 to 10 years in prison for a fatal accident a year ago that killed a Commodore man on Route 286 in Green Township.
Jeffrey Scot Fulmer was ordered by Judge Thomas Bianco to pay up to $1,000 in fines and $850 in court costs.
Jeffrey Scot Fulmer pleaded guilty to charges of homicide by vehicle and driving under the influence of alcohol on Oct. 12.
Fulmer was driving a Hyundai Elantra that ran into the rear of a pickup truck driven by Carl Wissinger, 67. Wissinger's truck was pushed into a guardrail and he was thrown from his vehicle.
