A Herminie man who admitted leaving the scene of a two-car accident that left another motorist seriously injured was sentenced Monday to 90 days in jail and another 90 days under house arrest.

William E. Feltes III, 32, pleaded guilty Monday to charges stemming from the accident shortly after 6:30 a.m. Dec. 26, 2011, at the intersection of Middletown Road and Route 136 in Hempfield.

The victim, Jarrod Webb, was flown from the scene to a Pittsburgh hospital where he was treated for two fractures to his pelvis and a severely lacerated tongue, according to court records.

When police arrived at the scene, Feltes' vehicle was empty, records show.

Witnesses told police that a man in a red sweatshirt, later identified as Feltes, asked to borrow a cell phone to call his wife before leaving the scene, police said.

Feltes later told police he was on the way to a methadone clinic for treatment and he may have fallen asleep. Police said Feltes was driving with a suspended license.
