Maine man indicted for manslaughter, OUI following fatal March crash in Naples

Ashley Gentile-Wing, 22, of Pennsylvania was one of three passengers in a Chevrolet Silverado driven by Chase Weese of Naples.

NAPLES, Maine — A 22-year-old Naples man has been indicted on charges including manslaughter and operating under the influence in connection with a March 6 crash that killed a Pennsylvania woman.

Chase James Weese was also indicted on felony counts of driving to endanger with serious injury and reckless conduct with a dangerous weapon, according to an indictment handed up this week by a Cumberland County grand jury.

Weese was driving his 2007 Chevrolet Silverado on Lambs Mill Road in Naples just before 11:30 p.m. on March 6 when the vehicle apparently hit a tree and rolled onto its side, Cumberland County sheriff's deputies said at the time.

Two passengers, Alexa Burak, 21, of Aliquippa, Pennsylvania, and Nathan Burak, 24, of Berwick, had freed themselves from the vehicle when state police troopers arrived, but Ashley Gentile-Wing, 22, of New Kensington, Pennsylvania, and Weese were trapped.

Weese was extricated from the vehicle and flown to Maine Medical Center by LifeFlight of Maine for what police said were possible life-threatening injuries.

Gentile-Wing died at the scene of the crash. Police said she was wearing a seat belt.
