DETROIT LAKES, MN (KFGO) - A Ponsford man will spend up to 7-and-a-half years in prison for a deadly hit-and-run in Becker County.

Bruce Basswood received a 92-month sentence after pleading guilty in the death of 21-year-old Joshua Jones. Basswood was driving drunk when he hit Jones last February on Pow Wow Highway and left the scene.

Deputies tracked Basswood's car to his home and say he smelled of alcohol and had bloodshot eyes.
