Spikes Sentenced To Probation For Hit-And-Run Crash
Former New England Patriots linebacker Brandon Spikes has pleaded guilty and will serve a year of probation in a hit-and-run crash that injured three people.
Spikes appeared Wednesday in Wrentham District Court, where he admitted to negligent operation of a motor vehicle, leaving the scene of personal injury, operating an uninsured vehicle, speeding and a marked lanes violation.
State police found a damaged Mercedes-Benz Maybach belonging to Spokes abandoned in the median of Interstate 495 in Foxborough on June 7. At about the same time, police responded to a report that a Nissan Murano SUV had been struck from behind by a vehicle that left the scene. Three people were treated for minor injuries.
The Patriots cut Spikes from the team after the accident.
An attorney for Spikes did not immediately return a call seeking comment. (Associated Press)
