The driver who was charged for the hit-skip crash that injured two bicyclists in August will be sentenced this afternoon in Logan County Common Pleas Court.
In October, Nathan Gregg, 33, of 7666 State Route 47 East, Bellefontaine, pleaded no contest and was found guilty of two counts of negligent assault and one count of failure to stop after an accident.
On August 7th, the Logan County Sheriff's Office reports that Gregg was driving a 2011 Toyota car westbound on State Route 47 near Benjamin Logan Schools when he struck Steve Stout, 61, and Penny Stout, 58, both of 5452 County Road 26, Bellefontaine, around 10:45 a.m. Gregg then fled the scene.
The Stouts, who were riding westbound, suffered incapacitating injuries.
Mr. Stout was transported to Mary Rutan Hospital by Bokescreek EMS.
Mrs. Stout was transported to Mary Rutan Hospital by Rushcreek EMS.
They were treated and released several hours after the crash.
Gregg went to the sheriff's office around four o'clock that afternoon and told deputies that he was involved in a crash earlier in the day.
Gregg was then charged with two felony counts of aggravated vehicular assault. He was lodged in the Logan County Jail.
He declined to provide further details about the accident.
Authorities have determined that Gregg was not under the influence of alcohol or drugs. He also was not texting.
Prosecutors are recommending a 60-day jail sentence and probation.
