Ohio doctor gets 15 days for hitting bicyclist

Court-Gavel

DELAWARE, Ohio (AP) — A Columbus-area doctor has been sentenced to 15 days in jail and 400 hours of community service for driving drunk and hitting a cyclist on a road in 2012.

The Columbus Dispatch reports that 39-year-old Elizabeth Unk was sentenced Monday after pleading guilty last month to drunken driving and felony vehicular assault.

Police say she hit a cyclist riding on Route 23 in Delaware in September 2012, seriously injuring the man.

The State Medical Board suspended Unk’s medical license in December as part of an agreement that will allow her to get it back after completing an alcohol-rehabilitation program. Her driver’s license was also suspended for two years. She must attend weekly meetings to address alcohol abuse.
