Driver From Fatal Orrington Crash Going Back To Jail
A man who was high when he caused an accident that killed a Brewer woman is going back to jail for using drugs.
Police say 33-year-old Marc Sparks of Bucksport had just left a methadone clinic in 2014 and was impaired when he struck an SUV from behind on Route 15 in Orrington, sending it crashing into a house. The driver of the SUV, 59-year-old Robin Rie of Brewer, was killed in the accident. In 2015, Sparks entered a plea of no contest to charges of Manslaughter and Criminal OUI and was sentenced to two years in jail.
WABI-TV reports Sparks was on probation recently when he was caught using drugs. Officials say he overdosed and Narcan was used to revive him. He's now going back to jail for two years.
