Will County man gets 9 years for fatal DUI crash

JOLIET – A northeastern Illinois man has been sentenced to nine years in prison for a high-speed drunken driving crash that killed another driver.

The Will County state's attorney's office on Thursday announced the sentencing of 32-year-old Jason Rymut of the village of Manhattan.

The August 2012 crash killed 26-year-old Bryan Bulger.

His car was idling at a stop sign when Rymut's vehicle slammed into its rear bumper at 83 mph. The force of the impact sent Bulger's car crashing into a third vehicle. The driver of that car was uninjured.

Prosecutors say Bulger suffered massive injuries to his head and body and died instantly.

Bulger's girlfriend was riding in the passenger seat. She survived with minor injuries.
