Elmira Man Sentenced for Fatal Crash

The driver of the car involved in an accident that claimed the life of an Elmira teenager was sentenced on vehicular manslaughter charges Friday.

Justin Jayne, who is also from Elmira, will spend one to three years in prison after being sentenced in Chemung County Court. 

On August 9th, 2015, Jayne was traveling east on Dutch Hill Road in Southport when he failed to negotiate a curve and left the roadway, striking a utility pole. A passenger in his car, 15 year old Hannah Jerzak, was taken to Strong Memorial Hospital where she later died.  Two other passengers were treated at local hospitals for their injuries.
