MINEOLA - ? An undocumented immigrant who was driving without a license and caused a deadly crash on the Wantagh Parkway was sentenced today.

Oscar Ramirez Lopez, of Brentwood, was sentenced to five to 15 years in prison after admitting to drinking nine beers before a crash that killed two men.

According to investigators, Ilario Scuteri, of West Islip, and Daniel Gambardella, of North Babylon, were heading to work at around 5 a.m. last April when they were sideswiped by a minivan, which caused them to slam into a tree.

Lopez was charged with DWI, vehicular manslaughter and driving without a license.

District Attorney Kathleen Rice said Ramirez will be deported to Guatemala once he has completed his prison sentence.
