PAINESVILLE, Ohio (AP) — A 29-year-old old Ohio man who was driving drunk when he drove into a house and hurt four people has been sentenced to more than 16 years in prison.

Judge Eugene Lucci sentenced Daniel Vanderhoof Jr. to the maximum sentence allowable for the December incident in Mentor, east of Cleveland. He pleaded guilty in February to two counts of aggravated vehicular assault and drunken driving.

A prosecutor said Vanderhoof was driving at least 62 mph when he lost control of the car and drove a 1991 Mercury Grand Marquis into the one-story home.

His blood alcohol level was .172 percent — more than twice the legal limit for driving in Ohio — and he had a suspended license.

The News-Herald of Willoughby (http://bit.ly/XZHdl3) reports that he was sentenced Wednesday.
