ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - A 20-year-old man is going to prison for three to 10 years for a hit-and-run accident that killed an Albany college student last November.
    
Alfred Zwack of Albany apologized for his crime as he was sentenced for second-degree manslaughter and leaving the scene of an accident Tuesday.
    
The accident at 1:40 a.m. on Nov. 26 killed 29-year-old Etemowei-James Oki, a student at the College of Saint Rose. Oki was crossing a street when he was struck by Zwack's speeding car.
    
Oki's sister gave a tearful victim's impact statement describing her brother as a "lovely soul" who was deeply religious and close to his family.
