Weaver was ordered to pay $30,000 to cover the medical expenses of one of the two individuals who was seriously injured in the car that he struck while under the influence of alcohol.

He will begin serving his sentence Nov. 11.

According to a news release from the Knox County Sheriff’s Office, on June 6 just before 8 p.m., a 2007 GMC truck, operated by Weaver, lost control of his vehicle traveling south and crossed over the center line, striking a 2012 Volkswagen, traveling north and operated by Brianna Widdecombe, 21, of Cushing.

Weaver’s vehicle was braking and sideways as it struck Widdecombe’s vehicle head-on with its passenger side.

The accident occurred on a stretch of Atlantic Highway north of Lie Nielson Toolworks. A portion of Route 1 in Warren was closed for three and a half hours after the accident. 

Weaver and Widdecombe were both transported by ambulances to local hospitals where LifeFlight then transported them to a Portland hospital. A passenger in Widdecombe’s vehicle was transported to Miles Memorial Hospital in Damariscotta with complaints of pain.  

Both vehicles were totaled in the crash. It was believed at the time that speed and possibly alcohol were factors in the crash, according to the news release. 

Warren Fire and Rescue, Waldoboro Ambulance, LifeFlight of Maine and Knox County Regional Communications Center assisted at the scene.

Deputy District Attorney Jeff Baroody was also called to the scene due to the seriousness of the crash.
