A Medway man who was driving a company
truck when it crashed and killed a passenger has been indicted on
charges of manslaughter and aggravated driving to endanger.
James Lee, who is 43, runs a construction business in
Millinocket with his brothers. He was driving a work crew home from
Belfast in a company truck when it left the road in Monroe at a
high rate of speed and crashed into the woods.
Twenty-eight-year-old William Russell was killed in the crash and
two other passengers were injured.
The indictment was released after Lee’s arrest on Wednesday and
Lee later was freed on $50,000 bail. State records show Lee has a
lengthy speeding record and his license has been suspended six
times in the past decade.
