An elderly man who pleaded guilty in connection with a deadly hit and run in Northumberland County will be sentenced in May. Eighty-two-year-old Wayne Wetzel, of Sunbury, pleaded guilty Monday to homicide by vehicle as part of plea agreement with prosecutors. Court papers say Wetzel drove away after hitting 71-year-old Ronald Clark with his SUV last August at the intersection of Orange and Second streets in Northumberland borough. Clark died from his injuries about a week later.
