A York County jury found Matthew Diehl guilty Friday of vehicular homicide while driving under the influence and homicide by vehicle in connection with the death of Loganville Fire Chief Rodney Miller.

The jury found Diehl not guilty of third-degree murder.

InĀ April 2013, Diehl drove his vehicle around Miller’s truck that was blocking lanes along I-83 near the Glen Rock exit, hitting Miller as he was directing traffic around the scene of a crash.

    The long and short of it is you were drunk, butthead. Does not matter if you think you hit a deer or not. Does not matter if the chief was wearing a reflective coat or naked. Does not matter if you had a bad day or you were celebrating your birthday. You were freakin’ drunk. You “effin” killed someone while you were doing something clearly illegal. Period. Go the hell to jail and think about your stupid choices and how to live life with better choices when you get out.
