ROCK HILL, S.C. — A South Carolina man convicted of driving under the influence for a fourth time was sentenced to 17 years in prison in connection with a crash last year that left a 66-year-old man dead in York County.
Tyler James Cummings pleaded guilty Wednesday to several DUI offenses.
Authorities said the 26-year-old man crossed the centerline of McConnells Highway, about 4 miles east of McConnells, in July 2019 and crashed his vehicle into a car carrying five people.
The crash killed 66-year-old Paul Kelly and left two others injured.
Cummings won’t be eligible for parole. He was convicted of driving under the influence in 2015 and twice in 2017.
