Boardman man convicted of an OVI crash in Austintown that injured two people has been sentenced to two years in prison and has had his driver's license suspended for five years.

That was the sentence handed down by Judge Scott Krichbaum to Chad Vodhanel who drove a car that crossed the center line of Route 46 in February, crashing into an oncoming SUV. The 66-year-old Austintown woman driving the SUV was seriously injured. A passenger in her vehicle was also injured.  Court officials say the sentence was made in agreement with the victims.

A police report says Vodhanel was driving a pickup truck on March 16 that rear-ended a car at a red light at Tippecanoe and Sheilds Roads.

No one was injured. Vodhanel was cited for failing to maintain an assured clear distance and driving under an OVI license suspension.

On Monday, Vodhanel a judge in Austintown sentenced Vodhanel to sixty days in jail after Township Police cited him in April for driving a pickup truck while having a suspended license. That sentence will be served at the same time as his two-year term.

According to court records, Vodhanel has a record of traffic violations in Mahoning County including DUI, speeding, and assured clear distance dating back 14 years.

In 2001, Vodhanel was sentenced to three days in jail and had his license suspended for 180 days after a DUI arrest.

Last month, Vodhanel was fined $325, sentenced to 20 days in jail, and had his license suspended for a year for refusing to undergo a blood alcohol test in November.
