An Ontario County man will spend the next two to six years in prison after being involved in a fatal hit-and-run in 2021.

He struck 62-year-old Edwin Wesley, who was riding a scooter while crossing South Main Street in Canandaigua.

Smith struck Wesley in October, then fled the scene in a green pickup truck.

Smith will be sentenced in May, prosecutors said.
