Ex-teacher sentenced after fatal drunken driving crash
MARSHFIELD (AP) - A former southwest Missouri teacher will spend 60 days in a county jail for causing an accident that injured his two daughters and killed a man.
Thirty-three-year-old Chad Bybee, of Rogersville, was sentenced for involuntary manslaughter Monday in the October 2013 crash that killed 84-year-old William Hughes of Seymour. He must serve 1,000 hours of community service and will face 12 years in prison if he doesn't complete five years of probation.
Investigators said Bybee was driving in the wrong lanes of U.S. 60 when his pickup truck collided head-on with a car driven Hughes. Bybee's two daughters were injured.
Tests found Bybee's blood-alcohol level was .192, more than twice Missouri's legal limit.
Bybee was an agriculture teacher at Logan-Rogersville High School at the time but later resigned.
