ALFRED – A jury today convicted Timothy Williams, 40, of South Portland on all 13 counts stemming from a high-speed chase and multiple car crash on the Maine Turnpike last year.
Williams was convicted of two counts of aggravated assault with a dangerous weapon; six counts of reckless conduct with a dangerous weapon; eluding a police officer; felony operating under the influence; criminal speeding; driving to endanger; and operating after suspension.
Police chased Williams after he was spotted speeding on the Route 1 bypass in Kittery. The chase continued for 10 miles on the Maine Turnpike at speeds that at times exceeded 100 mph. He was finally caught after sideswiping one car and then htitting another car containing four people, including a toddler and an infant.
The children were unhurt but their mother suffered a concussion and their father had a wrist injury. Williams had some bumps and bruises.
Judge Arthur Brennan ordered Williams held without bail. His sentencing is scheduled for mid-January.
