Maine Man to Serve 5 Years For Fatal Hit-and-Run Crash

May 8, 2017

PORTLAND, Maine - A Maine man has been ordered to serve five years in prison for a hit-and-run crash that claimed the life of a 25-year-old bicyclist in Windham.
 
Devin Brown of Scarborough reached a plea deal Monday in the crash that killed 26-year-old Brandon Dumond as he was riding his bicycle with his younger sister last November.
 
Police say the 33-year-old Brown was arrested after driving into a ditch a short time later. Brown, whose blood-alcohol level was twice the legal limit, pleaded guilty Monday to manslaughter and aggravated drunken driving.
 
He apologized during an emotional hearing that included the playing of a 911 call made by a neighbor who worked with family members in a frantic attempt to save Dumond.
