On June 10, 2013, a Luzerne County driver who fled the scene of a fatal accident, was sentenced to a prison term of 6-1/2  to 25 years.  The Luzerne County Judge ordered such a lengthy sentence due to the fact that the defendant killed 2 occupants of a motorcycle and then left the scene of the fatal crash without rendering aid or waiting for the police.
