A Mississippi truck driver has been sentenced to 28½ to 78 years in prison in an alcohol-related crash on a Pennsylvania interstate that killed three people, including a toddler.

PennLive.com reports that a Dauphin County judge imposed the sentence Tuesday on 29-year-old Jack Satterfield III.

Satterfield pleaded guilty in June to vehicular homicide while driving dunk and leaving the scene of an accident in the October 2018 crash in Lower Paxton Township.

Authorities said the McComb resident had consumed eight drinks earlier in the day before his truck plowed into slowed or stopped traffic near a construction zone on I-83.

The crash involved 11 vehicles and killed 24-year-old Zachary Lybrand of Middletown; his 16-month-old daughter, Elliana, and 22-year-old Ethan Van Bochoven, a college student from Pompton Plains, New Jersey.
