A Coram man was sentenced Wednesday to three to six years in prison for causing a crash that killed a 28-year-old man in Deer Park two years ago.

Stephan Harbison had pleaded guilty at Suffolk County court to driving while intoxicated and vehicular manslaughter.

Prosecutors said the 28-year-old man was driving on Straight Path when he crashed into a tree in January 2015.

His passenger, Hamzah Abdul-Hakim, of Wyandanch, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Harbison had a blood alcohol content of 0.15 percent, nearly double the legal limit at the time of the crash, authorities said.
