ALLENTOWN, Pa. -

An Allentown man will spend years behind bars for his role in a wild car chase that ended with a crash.

Officials say Bryan Rivera-Alicea was sentenced today to three to ten years in prison.

Police say after an altercation in January, Rivera-Alicea jumped in his minivan and chased after a car carrying his child's mother, another man and a baby.

Police say the car eventually crashed into a pole at 2nd and Tilghman streets.

The baby had to be taken to the hospital but no one was seriously hurt.
