A Brooklyn man was sentenced to prison today for mowing down a pair of teenage lovebirds while he was drunk.
Oliver Black, 55, ran into Brian Rosario and Elizabeth Lopez as they ran across Ocean Parkway against the light in December 2009.
Lopez suffered head injuries and Rosario’s leg was broken in the Coney Island crash.
Black, through his attorney Jay Schwitzman told Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Suzanne Mondo that he was sorry for the accident.
She sentenced him to two to four years in prison as part of a plea deal hammered out earlier this month.
“Clearly the kids ran into the six-lane parkway when the light was red against them,” Schwitzman told The Post. “He [Black] didn’t see them until they were right in front of his car.”
But, Schwitzman said, Black is “sorry for [hurting] the children. He has children of his own.”
