Man sentenced after crash killed young son

BELMONT, N.Y. -- A Belfast man heard his sentence Thursday afternoon after he killed his 4-year-old son in a horrific accident on Route 16 in the Town of Sardinia. 
 
On October 8th, 2015, 32-year-old Kevin McCabe was driving recklessly, when he crashed a 2005 Chevrolet Colorado pick-up into the back of a tractor-trailer. 
 
McCabe's son Tristan McCabe, who was sitting next to him without a seat belt, died from injuries. McCabe's niece Katherine sustained a broken femur in the crash. 
 
In September, McCabe was found guilty of first-degree Manslaughter and Endangering the Welfare of a Child in the second-degree. 
 
Thursday, he was sentenced to 2-6 years in prison.
