The driver charged with second-degree murder in a fatal accident two years ago has taken a plea deal.

On Wednesday, 20-year-old Omar Solomen Chahid pleaded guilty to felony hit and run and two counts of assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury. Those charges were reduced from the original charge of second-degree murder, among a long list of other charges.

Chahid was 18 years old when police say he wrecked his car on 5th Street in Greenville.

Police say the car he was driving crossed the center line and overturned. Officers say he was impaired at the time, and walked away from the accident.
   
The accident killed one passenger, 21-year-old Taylor Weiss, and seriously injured three other teenage girls.

A judge sentenced Chahid to 18-31 months in prison, with credit for the 13 months already served.

After his sentence he will be on at least 6 months probation with electronic monitoring. He cannot drive for two years on state roads after his release.

He must also write a 4-page paper explaining what he has learned from the incident. He'll also need to submit to drug and alcohol treatment programs in prison.
