A Connecticut man with a history of drunken driving infractions will serve up to 18 years in prison for causing a crash that killed one person and seriously injured another in Massachusetts last year. Frederick Weller of Newtown, Conn., pleaded guilty in Berkshire Superior Court Thursday to vehicular homicide, drunken driving, and other charges. Prosecutors said Weller’s truck slammed head-on into a car on Route 7 in Sheffield, seriously injuring the car’s driver. The truck then landed on top of a car driven by Moira Banks-Dobson, killing the 24-year-old Sheffield woman.
