A Frederick County man involved in a collision that injured multiple people in Mount Airy last year was convicted of driving while impaired Wednesday and will serve jail time.

Todd Frederic Walters, 51, of Middletown, pleaded not guilty but agreed not to challenge the state's version of the facts, according to Senior Assistant State's Attorney Adam Wells. The conviction was Walters' fourth alcohol-related driving offense since 2004.

Judge J. Barry Hughes sentenced Walters to three years in prison with all but one year suspended, according to Wells.

Walters was driving on Twin Arch Road in Mount Airy on June 29 when he struck a vehicle stopped at a red light, Wells said. The vehicle collided with the motorcycle in front of it and launched the rider into the intersection.

The victims sustained serious but non-life-threatening injuries from the collision, according to Wells. The occupants of the car were hospitalized and forced to miss the wedding of a family member occurring in Westminster that day.

Walters will be on probation for five years upon his release and required to participate in the ignition interlock program for all five years, Wells said.

Restitution was not ordered Wednesday because it is being handled in civil court, he said.
