A North Huntingdon man was sentenced to six to 23 months Thursday for crashing into a school bus in February while driving under the influence of a controlled substance.

Andrew M. Slywczuk, 29, pleaded guilty last week to possession with intent to deliver and two counts of driving under the influence. He was given credit for time served of 8 12 months and was paroled by Judge Alfred Bell, according to court records.

Slywczuk was arrested Feb. 27 after the morning crash on Pleasant Valley Road in Penn Township. He told police that he used some of the heroin he had just bought in Pitcairn that he planned to distribute in Westmoreland County.

After colliding with the school bus, Slywczuk tossed 50 stamp bags over a hillside, police said. The bus driver and a boy aboard were not injured.
