COLLEGE PARK, Md. (WUSA9) -- The driver who hit and killed a University of Maryland last January was sentenced to two years in prison Friday.

Liam Adepo pleaded guilty in November 2014 to charges stemming from the hit-and-run crash in College Park that killed student Cory Hubbard.

After his prison sentenced, he will serve three years of supervised release.
