    William Gerardi, 21, of Hebron, is facing charges in Maine after allegedly providing two teens with liquor shortly before they died in a crash, according to NBC affiliate WCSH.

    A 21-year-old Hebron native is accused of giving liquor to two teens in Maine before they died in a crash that police say was caused in part by alcohol, according to NBC affiliate WCSH.

    Police said William Gerardi, of Hebron, provided alcohol to 19-year-old Casey Dalton and a 17-year-old boy. The two were killed when Dalton’s SUV veered off the roadway in Boothbay, Maine, early Wednesday morning and struck a cluster of trees, WCSH reports. The teens were pronounced dead at the scene.

    Alcohol and speed contributed to the crash, police told WCSH. Dalton was not wearing a seatbelt.

    Gerardi was arrested in Maine and charged with one felony count of furnishing liquor to a minor. He’ll appear in court tomorrow, and police said additional charges may be filed, according to WCSH.
