BUFFALO, NY-An Erie County Sheriff's' deputy will find out what life is like on the other side of a prison cell after a judge sentenced him to jail in a DWI crash that seriously injured a Tonawanda man.

Erie County Court judge Timothy Franczyk Wednesday sentenced Michael Haug, 29, to a term of 2-6 years following his plea late last year to a charge of first degree vehicular assault.

Haug admitted he was drunk when he struck 37-year-old Daniel Colosimo of Tonawanda last August.

Colosimo was on his motorcycle stopped at a red light at Sheridan and Bailey in Amherst when he was hit.

Haug's blood alcohol level at the time as .25%, more that three times the legal limit.

The accident left Colosimo with a traumatic brain injury.
