2 sentenced in crash that killed Monroe Co. intern
Monroe — Two men have been sentenced to community service and probation following the death of a Monroe County Road Commission intern in a 2015 traffic crash.
The Monroe News reports 60-year-old semi-truck driver Robert McDonald of Fenton and 68-year-old salvage yard owner Thomas Damron of Temperance learned their punishment Tuesday. They each got 75 days of community service and 18 months of probation.
Both apologized. They earlier pleaded no contest to a charge of moving violation causing death, a misdemeanor that carries a maximum penalty of one year in jail.
Authorities say 18-year-old Sean Brady of Monroe was killed in the May 21, 2015, crash that happened when a semi that was being scrapped was being towed behind another semi. Brady’s passenger in the road commission pickup was injured.
