A 22-year-old man has been sentenced after a horrific accident in Chatham last summer.

Back on August 11, 2013, a car carrying six people crashed on Michener Rd. near Valley Rd., hitting a street light and a hydro box before flipping. All six were taken to hospital.

Brandon Bertotti was originally charged with impaired driving causing bodily harm, dangerous driving causing bodily harm and numerous other charges.

He’s been sentenced to nine months in jail and an 18-month driving prohibition on one count of dangerous driving causing bodily harm. The other charges were withdrawn.
