Wrong way driver gets at least 26 years in prison

(Painesville) - A man convicted of driving into oncoming traffic in a suicide attempt was sentenced in Lake County Common Pleas Court today.

Michael Davis is serving 26 years to life behind bars for murder, felonious assault and other charges.

On July 4th, 2017, Davis tried to take his own life by plowing into vehicles in the Cleveland suburb of Willoughby Hills. He survived, but killed a 26 year old Eastlake man and critically injured his fiance.

Appearing before Judge Eugene Lucci in a wheelchair, the 40 year old Davis begged for forgiveness, and blamed the tragedy on his battles with mental illness.
