Man with seizure disorder sentenced for fatal crash

PITTSBURGH (AP) — A man who kept driving despite a history of blackouts was sentenced to three to six years in prison Tuesday for a crash that killed a pregnant woman and her mother.

Jack Monroe Smith, 51, also received 10 years' probation for the 2000 crash and for another accident last year in which four women were injured.

Prosecutors contend Smith misled his doctors and state officials about his seizure disorder so he could keep driving despite a history of blackout-related crashes.
