A man from Lincoln involved in a deadly car crash in New Vineyard was sentenced today to six months in jail. But a judge in Franklin County immediately suspended the sentence, pending an appeal. 23-year-old Ryan Hurd was found guilty in May of letting a drunk friend drive his car. He was cleared on the more serious charge of manslaughter. A man from Dover-Foxcroft died in the crash in 2007 – another man from Medway was seriously hurt.Hurd’s lawyer maintains Hurd wasn’t behind the wheel when his car hit a utility pole and caught fire.
