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.

Wissinger died in Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center in Johnstown eight days after the Jan. 23, 2012, crash.

Police said Fulmer's blood-alcohol level was 0.147 percent and blood tests disclosed he had cocaine in his system. The legal blood-alcohol limit in Pennsylvania is 0.08 percent.

Fulmer pleaded guilty to the charges on Oct. 12, according to court records.
