LANCASTER COUNTY, Pa. —  Two drunk drivers, convicted at separate trials, will soon be sentenced after background checks are complete, Lancaster County District Attorney’s Office reported on Friday.

William John Russell, 43, and Benuel Nabozny, 33, had blood-alcohol levels higher than the legal limit when they crashed, officials reported.

Russell, of Willow Lane, Gap, crashed his motorcycle in Salisbury Township on June 12, 2016 in the 5300 block of Old Philadelphia Pike.

This was Russell’s second DUI in the past decade. Russell was convicted on March 2.

Nabozny, of East Main Street, Leola, crashed his Chevy Camaro into a tree in the 5000 block of Deim Rd., Earl Township on Dec. 14, 2015, police said. His blood-alcohol level was .114 percent.
