ST. JEROME, Quebec -- He assumed it was an airbag -- but it turned out to be the body of a teenager he had hit with his car.

A Canadian man who drove around with an 18-year-old's body lodged in his windshield after hitting him has been sentenced to 3.5 years in prison.

Gilles Francoeur pleaded guilty last year to leaving the scene of an accident in Quebec.

The man said at a sentencing hearing that he felt an impact while driving home. He said his windshield broke and he saw something on the passenger seat -- but assumed it was the airbag that deployed.

He said it was only after he went home and then out again that he realized a dead body was stuck in the windshield.
