An Elma man will spend four months of weekends behind bars for hitting two bicyclists while under the influence of prescription morphine and diazepam.
Back in June of 2017, investigators say 63-year-old Michael Zaenglein admitted to driving a vehicle on the shoulder of Clinton Road in the Town of Elma where he hit the bicyclists. One bicyclist was in a coma for nearly a month and suffered several serious injuries, including a traumatic brain injury.
Zaenglein pleaded guilty to Vehicular Assault in the Second Degree in September 2018. His license has been revoked for a minimum of one year. Zaenglein will also serve five years of probation.
