A Northampton County jury cleared John Heaney III of the most serious counts, finding him not guilty Tuesday of charges including vehicular homicide.

Prosecutors alleged Heaney had up to six drinks before the July 2011 crash that killed Keith Michaelson and Michael Zadoyko and injured four others in Bangor.

Heaney claimed he passed out from low blood sugar resulting from gastric bypass surgery. He refused a blood draw after the crash.

Michaelson, of West Milford, N.J., and Zadoyko, of Pompton Lakes, N.J., belonged to a club for riders recovering from drug and alcohol addiction.

Sentencing is set for January.
