ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) — A Silver Spring man has been sentenced to five years in prison for a head-on collision in Rockville that left a woman dead.

The Montgomery County State’s Attorney’s Office said in a news release that 35-year-old Juan Francisco Diana pleaded guilty to vehicular manslaughter. He was sentenced Tuesday and was also ordered to have an ignition interlock installed in his car.
