BANGOR, Maine — An Amherst man involved in a fatal crash two years ago admitted Monday he was traveling at an imprudent speed, according to court documents.

Jonathan D. Hichborn, 38, who appeared at the Penobscot Judicial Center, was ordered to pay a $3,000 fine or to perform 300 hours of community service by July 8 for the traffic infraction, which is a civil violation. Hichborn’s license to drive was suspended for three years.

Hichborn was driving a logging truck on Dec. 16, 2013, on Route 180, known locally as Rebel Hill Road, in Clifton when he lost control of his rig on the icy road, according to a previously published report. He struck an eastbound pickup truck head-on.

The driver of the pickup, Steven Andrews, 64, of Otis, was pronounced dead at the scene, the Penobscot County Sheriff’s Office said the day after the collision. Andrews’ wife, Nancy Andrews, 64, suffered serious injuries that forced her to relocate last year to New Hampshire “following her extensive hospitalization at [Eastern Maine Medical Center] in order to live with relatives who could support her during her recovery,” according to a court document filed by the Penobscot County district attorney’s office.

The civil violation Hichborn admitted to Monday was committing a traffic infraction resulting in death, Marianne Lynch, assistant district attorney for Penobscot County, who handled the case, said Wednesday.

Hichborn committed that infraction by driving too fast for the icy road conditions, she said.

Lynch said that she expected Hichborn to fulfill his obligation by performing some community service at a church where he lives.

“This statute is the only one that specifically allows a judge to impose a sentence of community service,” Lynch said Wednesday.

The maximum fine allowed that can be imposed is $5,000, she said.
