Man sentenced in crash that injured six


Eau Claire (WQOW) - A driver who smashed into a stalled van in the road sending six people to the hospital has been sentenced.

Abel Lipoff of Luck was convicted this week of second offense driving with a prohibited alcohol content. Deputies said his alcohol level was more than three times the legal limit. He'll serve 20 days in jail and can't drive for 1.5 years.

In January his pickup truck hit a van that was stopped partially in a lane of Highway 35. Lipoff told police he didn't see the van because it didn't have any lights on.
