CHRISTIANSBURG, Va. (AP) - A Salem man has been sentenced to more than eight years in prison for a wrong-way crash on Interstate 81 that injured three people.

Media outlets report that 40-year-old Kenneth Craft was sentenced Tuesday in Montgomery County Circuit Court for maiming and driving under the influence of alcohol.

Craft also was fined $7,500 and order to pay more than $10,000 in restitution to the victims.

Court records show Craft drove the wrong way on I-81 on June 7, 2014, and was involved in an accident with two other vehicles. Two sibling teenagers in one of the vehicles and a woman driving another vehicle were injured. One of the teens suffered a torn aorta, multiple broken bones and a ruptured spleen.
