Count II – Causing Death When Operating a Vehicle With a Controlled Substance While at Least Twenty-One (21) Years of Age - Class B Felony
On June 7, 2012, at approximately 5:50 A.M., 42-year-old Daniel Snead was driving a car westbound on CR 20 approaching the US HWY 20 overpass. Eighteen-year-old David Anglemyer and his best friend, 19-year-old Daniel Runion, were riding bicycles eastbound having just left Daniel’s house in Osceola. Snead’s Ford Taurus crossed the center line and struck the two young men in a head-on crash. Both boys were flung from their bikes, after which Snead’s car struck the concrete support structure for the overpass.
David Anglemyer was pronounced dead at the scene, and Daniel Runion was transported to Memorial Hospital by helicopter where he was later pronounced dead from injuries from the crash.
Toxicology results from Snead were positive for methamphetamine and marijuana. Snead told police that he had smoked a methamphetamine-“laced” marijuana cigarette or “joint” the night prior to the crash.
Snead was charged in the deaths and pleaded guilty on January 17, 2013, to both charges. He was sentenced on February 21, 2013, to a total of 30 years, with 6 of those on reporting probation, 6 at community corrections, and 18 at the Indiana Department of Correction. Family members for both boys were represented at the hearing before Judge Shewmaker in Elkhart Circuit Court.
