Pennsylvania Teacher Gets 2 to 5 years in Drunken Crash That Killed 2 Teens

January 8, 2015

A Pennsylvania teacher who drunkenly drove into five teenagers as they walked and biked near a school has been sentenced to two to five years in state prison.

Victor Swaboski III apologized in court Monday for the March 2012 hit-and-run that left one teen with a fractured pelvis that required plates and screws.

Four of the victims attended the hearing and said the sentence was lenient.

The 41-year-old Swaboski pleaded guilty in October to aggravated assault by motor vehicle while driving under the influence and other offenses.

Police say Swaboski’s blood-alcohol content level was nearly three times the legal limit when he struck the teens and dragged a bicycle.

Police found him in the woods a half-mile away.

Swaboski later resigned from teaching elementary school in the Shamokin Area district.
