MONTROSE -- A driver who caused a crash in Susquehanna County that killed a 6-month-old girl will spend the next two to five years in prison.
A judge sentenced Zachary Larue of Kingsley Thursday morning in Montrose.
Last month, Larue pleaded guilty to homicide by vehicle and aggravated assault.
It was an emotional day for the family of 6-month-old Lainey Johnson, who died last year following the crash.
"We're glad Lainey got some kind of justice," says Lindsay Johnson, Lainey's mother. "But even in our mind, it's never going to be enough."
State police say 22-year-old Zachary Larue was speeding last year on Route 92 near Lenox when he caused a three-vehicle crash.
Lindsay Johnson was driving with 6-month-old Lainey when Larue's truck collided with their SUV.
"Obviously it was a real tragic situation but it was an unintentional situation," says Paul Ackourey, Larue's attorney.
Six different members of the Johnson family spoke in court, several directly to Zachary Larue, and urged the judge for a strict sentence.
"Obviously it's hard to look him in the eyes,"says Jake Johnson, Lainey's father. "I was kind of relieved to finally tell him how we felt. It's never going to be enough."
"He couldn't even say sorry to us in there so I'm glad it's over," Lindsay Johnson adds.
While Johnson family members say they`re relieved to see Larue behind bars, they say his sentence should have been longer.
"Lainey can never come back to us," says Susan Young, Lainey's grandmother. "He spends a short time in jail and he goes on with his life. We have to live with this forever."
After Zachary Larue serves his prison sentence, he'll have to spend nine years on probation.
