A Lubbock man will serve six years in the Texas Department of Corrections for a 2013 deadly crash. 

The sentencing took place Monday afternoon.

Last week, Scott Folkerts pleaded guilty to manslaughter for the crash that killed 36-year-old Drew Baize.

Authorities say Folkerts was drunk when he lost control of his vehicle on 82nd Street and crashed into another vehicle.
