Charles Seaborn had been drinking when he hit Daniel Vasquez, 48, early on the morning Feb 9, 2007, near the entrance of Point Lobos State Park, according to the district attorney's office.
Around 7 a.m. that day, drivers reported seeing Vasquez' body and the California Highway Patrol did not know who struck him.
More than an hour later Seaborn called 911 and told police he struck something on the highway, but did not know if it was a deer or a person, according to the district attorney's office.
CHP officers found pieces of Vasquez' bike still attached to Seaborn's vehicle and later determined he had been under the influence of alcohol.
Friday Judge Terrance Duncan sentenced Seaborn, who was immediately taken into custody after to start his prison term, for vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated and hit and run.
