The Elkhart man who killed two teenage bicyclists last summer while driving under the influence has admitted to the crime.

According to the Elkhart Truth, Daniel Snead, 43, pleaded guilty on Thursday to two counts of causing the death of another while driving under the influence of a schedule I or II substance or its metabolite in the person’s blood.

He agreed to a sentence of 18 years in prison, six years in alternative placement through community corrections and six years on reporting probation.

The crash happened last June on C.R. 20. Snead was driving his girlfriend's uninsured vehicle when he crossed over the center line, hitting two young men who were riding their bikes in the opposite direction.

Both bicyclists, David Anglemyer, 18, of Goshen, and Daniel Runion, 19, of Osceola, were both killed.
