JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colo. -- Zachary Strnad will spend the next decade behind bars after hearing his sentence in a Jefferson County courtroom Friday. Strnad, 20, pleaded guilty to drinking and driving -- killing 38-year-old Tom Flanagan while he was cycling on Lookout Mountain in August. Flanagan was riding downhill on Lookout Mountain Road when Strnad, driving uphill under the influence, hit and killed him while passing another vehicle on a blind curve, across double yellow lines, according to the Jefferson County District Attorney's Office.
