A 25-year-old man who pleaded no contest to charges stemming from a hit-and-run crash in a Whittier crosswalk that resulted in the death of a 69-year-old man with a walker was sentenced to two years in state prison on Thursday.

Isaiah Storey pleaded no contest Aug. 20 to a felony count of leaving the scene of an accident and a misdemeanor count of vehicular manslaughter.

Gregory Reyes was walking along the 7000 block of Greenleaf Avenue when he was struck Oct. 21, 2013, by an SUV driven by Storey, according to Deputy District Attorney Garie Lynn Oehler.

The car slowed down briefly, but then drove off, the prosecutor said.

Reyes died three days later from his injuries.
