Posted by Sheli Muniz -email

WEST PALM BEACH(WFLX)---A local college student learns her fate for driving drunk and hitting a construction worker.

Investigators say 21-year-old Tiffany Ianieri was driving with a blood alcohol level more than twice the legal limit.

She hit road crew member Howell Chambers who was working on Forest Hill Boulevard in Palm Springs in June of last year.

Chambers says he suffered 14 broken bones and will never be the same.
On Thursday, Ianieri apologized. Her lawyer asked for probation only, but the judge gave Ianieri 3 years in prison.

Howell Chambers said, "When you're freedom's taken away and you're locked up, it makes you think.  Yeah, she needs that."

Members of Ianieri's family declined comment.
