BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Boca Raton resident Frank J. Barrucco will spend the next 8 years in prison and will never have a driver's license again.

The 28-year-old Mansfield Lane resident pled guilty to DUI Manslaughter and Possession of Cocaine. He killed Boynton Beach resident Steven Fischer on March 18th, 2011 — prior to BocaNewsNow.com's existence.

Here's how the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office says it happened:

Barrucco was travelling south bound on Beracasa Way, approaching the intersection of Palmetto Park Road. Fischer was travelling west bound in lane two of Palmetto Park Road, approaching the intersection of Beracasa Way. As Barrucco entered the intersection, it pulled into Fischer's lane of travel. In an attempt to avoid a collision, Fischer applied the brakes and swerved, but was struck on the right side by the front of Barrucco's vehicle. As the collision ensued, Fischer was ejected from his vehicle, and came to rest a short distance away from the point of impact. Just prior to impact, Barrucco came to final rest on the center median of Palmetto Park Road, facing west.
