Adam Sofio of Red Bank was also ordered Thursday to serve three years of supervised release once he’s released. And his driver’s license will be suspended for five years after he leaves prison.

Prosecutors say the 19-year-old Sofio was driving more than 75 mph in a 25 mph zone in Middletown when the crash occurred in February 2011. He pleaded guilty to vehicular homicide charges earlier this year.

Eighteen-year-old Paul Bradley of Middletown was killed in the crash, while 19-year-old John Vogel of Middletown was critically injured.
