Driver in Deadly Luzerne County Wreck Sentenced

WILKES-BARRE -- The driver who admitted causing a deadly crash in Luzerne County will spend six months on probation.

Adam Zawatsky was sentenced Monday.

He pleaded guilty last month to involuntary manslaughter.

His car and another driven by Joseph Gianuzzi of Falls collided in April of 2016 on Route 309 in the Dallas area.

Gianuzzi was killed in the wreck.

Zawatsky must also complete 20 hours of community service.

A previous version of this story indicated Zawatsky was sentenced to prison. That was incorrect.
