A Fort Wayne man who pleaded guilty to numerous charges in a 2011 crash that left another motorist with life-changing injuries has been sentenced to three years in prison.
Nicholas Bowers was also sentenced Friday to one year on probation for the November 2011 crash. Prosecutors said Bowers, 21, was under the influence of marijuana when he lost control of his car while trying to pass another vehicle.
He crashed head-on into another car, knocking its driver unconscious and leaving that man with broken bones and a hip damaged so badly one of his legs is now shorter than the other.
The Journal Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/11yXr9E ) Bowers pleaded guilty to operating a motor vehicle under the influence, criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon causing injury and other charges.
