Weymouth: 2 1/2 year sentence for drunk driver in 2012 case

The Weymouth man who drove 110 miles per hour down Route 3 and rear-ended another car in January 2012 will be spending at least two and a half years in prison.

The Norfolk District Attorney’s office announced the sentencing today. 50 year old Joseph Egan is admitting he was drunk and negligent when he was seen speeding down Route 3, weaving in and out of traffic, before rear-ending a Toyota highlander, causing it to slam into the guard rail and leaving the driver with severe injuries.

The D-A’s office says Egan’s blood alcohol level was at point two two, more than double the legal limit. He was convicted for two previous OUIs in the 90s. Egan will also lose his license for eight years as part of his sentence.
