The Alabama Supreme Court rejected a Gurley man's appeal over a fatal crash that killed a Buckhorn High School student.
Court records made public Friday show the state high court denied a Writ of Certiorari in Joshua Getzinger's case.
Getzinger was sentenced to 40 years in prison for leaving the scene of an accident that killed 18-year-old Jordan Collier.
The teen was hit while driving along Maysville Road in December of 2018 and Getzinger was arrested more than a week later.
He remains in the Madison County jail pending his transfer to state prison.
The 47-year-old received a stronger sentence due to multiple other felonies from previous criminal convictions.
