A repeated DUI offender will serve up to five years in state prison after a head-on collision last month on Route 272.
Gregory J. Shelley, of Ephrata, was more than four times the state legal limit when authorities said he veered into opposing traffic and drove his Mercedes into a tractor-trailer.
Shelley had a blood-alcohol level of .34 percent.
The incident is Shelley’s third DUI conviction. It will cost him five years in prison, $3,050 in fines and $18,445 in restitution for damage to the tractor-trailer.
Shelley’s previous DUI conviction was in 2006. His blood alcohol level was reportedly .229 percent.
