LEWISTON — A Virginia man was sentenced to spend over one month in jail stemming from a Turner crash that sent him and another driver to the hospital with serious injuries.

Matthew Brady, 33, of Lynchburg was sentenced to 30 months in prison, but an 8th District Court judge of the Unified Criminal Docket suspended all of that sentence but 45 days. He will be on probation for two years when he is released from jail.

Brady pleaded guilty last week to a felony charge of aggravated driving to endanger, which is punishable by up to five years in prison.

He was involved in March in a three-vehicle crash at Routes 4 and 219.

Brady was driving a 1993 Toyota pickup truck eastbound on Route 219. He failed to stop at the sign and flashing red light at the intersection with Route 4, according to the Androscoggin County Sheriff’s Office.

That pickup truck collided with a 2002 Volvo owned and driven by Alexis Wyman-Labelle, 19, of Farmington. The impact caused her vehicle to collide with a 2002 Jeep Liberty driven by Daniel Brett, 22, of Livermore, authorities said.

Brady was taken to Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston. Wyman-Labelle had to be extricated from her vehicle by Turner Fire Department and was transported by LifeFlight to Central Maine Medical Center. Brett was not injured, authorities said.

Brady was ordered to pay a $1,000 fine and $40,000 in restitution to Wyman-Labelle after his release from jail. His license was also suspended for one year.

While on probation, he must complete a driver education program, according to court papers.
