ALFRED, Maine — A South Portland man police say caused a multivehicle pileup on the Maine Turnpike last year has been convicted on 13 violations.

Timothy Williams was convicted Thursday in connection with a chase that reached speeds of 100 miles per hour.

The 40-year-old Williams was convicted of aggravated assault with a dangerous weapon, reckless conduct with a dangerous weapon, eluding a police officer, felony operating under the influence, criminal speeding, driving to endanger and operating after suspension.

Police say he was speeding and changing lanes erratically in November 2010 when he sideswiped a van and rear-ended another vehicle, sending it spinning into the guardrail. There were only minor injuries.

The Portland Press Herald reported that Williams is scheduled to be sentenced in January.
