34 years for Lorain County drunk driver

ELYRIA, OH (WOIO) - A drunk driver who killed a mother and son was sentenced to 34 years in prison Friday.

Gerald Wetherbee's court appearance was very emotional.

The fatal crash happened in June 2011 in Grafton Township along State Route 83 when Wetherbee struck a vehicle with a family of four inside.

Thomas Tomasheski III and his mother Tammy were both killed. The father, Lorain County Sheriff's Corporal Thomas Tomasheski and his 13-year-old daughter survived with serious injuries.
