WHITE RIVER JUNCTION, Vt. (AP) - A New Hampshire man will serve 10 days in prison for a crash that killed a Vermont woman last May.
The Valley News reports that 47-year-old Timothy Farewell of Enfield wept throughout Wednesday's sentencing hearing but declined an opportunity to address the court.
He was traveling east on Route 4 toward Woodstock on May 16 when the box truck he was driving crossed the center line and crashed into a car driven by 84-year-old Norma Sawyer of Bridgewater. The plea deal angered the victim's relatives, but the judge said the state couldn't prove Farewell intentionally caused the crash.
Farewell pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor negligent operation charge. His lawyer called him a good person who is overwrought with emotion from the case.
