The driver in a high-speed crash that left a victim with a traumatic brain injury was sentenced to a year in jail, Erie County District Attorney John J. Flynn said Thursday.
Marshawn Levy, 34, of Buffalo, was driving north on Bailey Avenue on May 13 when he crashed head-on into another car that was waiting in the southbound lane to make a left turn onto East Delavan Avenue.
State Supreme Court Justice John L. Michalski sentenced Levy, who earlier pleaded guilty to first-degree vehicular assault. Levy had a blood alcohol content of .12 percent at the time of the crash, prosecutors said.
The other driver, Dwight Daniels, 27, was hospitalized for a month with severe leg injuries. His passenger, Trevor Jenkins, 25, suffered a traumatic brain injury and has not been able to speak or feed himself since the crash, suffers from seizures and remains in a wheelchair. He is receiving long-term care at ECMC's Terrace View Long-Term Care Facility.
