Three men who got into a fight with a Syracuse man and left him in the road where he was hit by a car and killed have been sentenced to several years in prison.

Keenan McGriff, Andrew Thomas, and Robert Wilson got into a fight with Ernest Collins, 30, in August 2017 on N. Salina St. According to prosecutors, the men left Collins in the road.

A driver, who didn’t see Collins, ran over him. Collins later died at the hospital.

In court Monday during a sentencing hearing, prosecutors said the three suspects saw it happen and still ran off.

McGriff and Wilson pleaded guilty to second degree manslaughter and were sentenced to 1 1/3 to 4 years in prison.

Thomas pleaded guilty to negligent homicide and will serve 2-4 years in prison.

All three men spoke in court and apologized to the victim’s family. They repeatedly said they were sorry for everything.
