SNOW HILL, Md.- A 48-year-old man will have to spend 10 years behind bars in connection with a late 2011 crash in Ocean City that left a baby severely injured.

Andre J. Kaczynski of Berlin appeared in Worcester County Circuit Court on Friday where he was sentenced to 15 years in prison, with five of those years suspended. Three years of probation will follow his release.

Kaczynski pleaded guilty in August to nearly a dozen charges- including speeding, negligent driving and driving while impaired by PCP- for causing the Dec. 16, 2011 crash that occurred on 142nd Street in Ocean City. Ava DelRicco, who was 1-year-old at the time, was critically injured in the crash.

Police said the car Ava and her mother were riding in was stopped at a red light, when Kaczynski, who was traveling at a high rate of speed, slammed his pickup into the rear of the vehicle.
