WILKES-BARRE -- A driver has been sentenced for a deadly DUI crash in Luzerne County.

Joseph Kaminski of Duryea was sentenced Monday to five to ten years in prison for homicide while DUI and driving with a suspended license, according to the D.A.'s office.

Kaminski was high on morphine in December of 2014 when he crossed into oncoming traffic on River Road near Wilkes-Barre, killing a 71-year-old woman from Pittston.

He pleaded guilty last year.

    Another waste of space. Maybe we could ban cars, morphine, River St or all people from Dureya. I wish someone could give us the statistics on deaths caused by refugees and deaths caused by our own trash. I am willing to bet that our own trash is more of a problem but that doesn’t get people scared to go out and vote.

    • my stats

      I can give you one statistic on deaths caused by foreigners (refugees… same thing). How about 2,996 people that died on September 11th 2001? Is that a good enough statistic for you? Need some more?
