Pa. man gets state prison for road rage death

An eastern Pennsylvania man is getting one to two years in state prison for deliberately swerving his car toward another car, causing a fatal crash. A Schuylkill County judge also gave 61-year-old William Howard Moyer five years on probation once he is freed from prison.

In September 2007, Moyer swerved toward a car driven by 23-year-old Angeline Francisci of Hazleton in what police described as "road rage." Police say Francisci's car then swerved into the path of oncoming traffic, and she was killed.

Moyer pleaded guilty to homicide by vehicle, involuntary manslaughter and other charges. He apologized in court at Wednesday's sentencing, but the dead woman's mother would not accept his apology.
