ALFRED, Maine — A 24-year-old Sanford man has been sentenced for causing a 2010 traffic accident that killed one person and injured five others.

Zachary Bubar will serve two years in prison, with the remainder of a nine-year sentence suspended. He’ll also be on probation for four years.

The Portland Press Herald reported Bubar was sentenced by a York County Superior Court judge on Thursday following his conviction last month on manslaughter and other charges.

Authorities say Bubar was driving a car that crashed into a van. Police say a speeding Bubar pulled into the northbound lane around a car that was signaling to make a right turn and slammed into a van headed north.

Shawn Beaulieu, who was riding in the front seat of Bubar’s vehicle, was killed.
