AUGUSTA, Maine — A Maine motorcycle rider accused of causing a crash that killed his passenger last summer has been indicted on a manslaughter charge.
Police say 37-year-old Brenton Blais exceeded the legal limit of alcohol for operating a motorcycle at the time of the crash that killed Jennifer Lavigne of South Portland.
The crash happened in July 2015 in Westbrook.
Both Lavigne and Blais were transported to the Maine Medical Center after the crash. Lavigne was pronounced dead at the hospital. Neither was wearing a helmet.
A phone number for Blais could not be located. It was not immediately known if he has a lawyer.
