FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - A Florida man has been sentenced to 29 years in prison for the wrong-way crash that killed two sisters on Interstate 95 in Martin County.

Prosecutors say 26-year-old Admerson Cleber Eugenio Vicente-Vicente had a blood-alcohol level about twice the legal limit to drive when he drove head-on into them in 2015.

The sisters Alexis Musumeci, 24, and Brittany Musumeci, 23, were returning to their mother's Pompano Beach home after a trip to Universal Studios.

The younger sister had just graduated with honors from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. The older one was a U.S. Air Force sergeant.

Vicente-Vicente apologized to the family on Thursday, adding that he wakes up wondering why he didn't die instead of the sisters.

The SunSentinel reports their mother Martha Canizares says she's "tortured" by their last moments.
