GOSHEN — A northern Indiana man who struck and killed two bicyclists while driving along a road has been sentenced to 18 years in prison.

The Elkhart Truth reports that 43-year-old Daniel Snead of Goshen pleaded guilty in January to causing death while driving under the influence of drugs.

Nineteen-year-old Daniel Runion and 18-year-old David Anglemeyer were riding their bicycles east on a county road in the early morning on June 7 when they were struck by a westbound vehicle driven by Snead. Anglemeyer died instantly. Runion died later at a South Bend hospital.

Snead was arrested two months later.
