SAN DIEGO — A father who walked away from his fatally wounded 4-year-son after a car wreck has been sentenced to four years in prison.

Angelo Fabiani was sentenced Friday for hit-and-run driving after leaving his son at the accident scene in 2013 and walking nearly 18 miles to his home in Imperial Beach.

The San Diego Union-Tribune reports that (http://bit.ly/1HjFgJp) Fabiani's truck tumbled over an embankment and came to rest on its side on a retaining wall.

Fabiani unbuckled his son's car seat but then walked away after the boy fell another 10 feet onto the pavement below.

The boy died a week later.

Fabiani has multiple drunken driving convictions but it's not clear if he'd been drinking that night.

His attorney, Allen Bloom, says he was in shock.
