A Sabattus man is facing new charges stemming from last week’s deadly chain-reaction crash in Lewiston.
Ryan Curran, 37, has been charged with manslaughter, operating after suspension and violating his probation, according to Lt. Derrick St. Laurent, a spokesperson for the Lewiston Police Department.
Curran was speeding in a 2000 Ford F250 on Lisbon Street, near Scribner Boulevard, about 2:40 p.m. when he rear-ended a Volkswagen stopped in traffic, sending it crashing into a 2017 Chevrolet cargo van, injuring multiple people, police have said.
Shari Williams, 60, of Auburn, who was a passenger in the back of the Volkswagen, was fatally injured in the crash.
Curran was expected to be arraigned at 1 p.m. Wednesday in Lewiston district court.
