The 25-year-old man who seriously injured four Neshaminy High School girls in a drunken head-on crash in Northampton Township last year will spend more than 15 to 30 years in state prison.
Shane Brolly was heavily intoxicated the night of March 27, 2021, when he crossed into opposing traffic to pass a vehicle crash in the 300 block of Bridgetown Pike in Northampton Township and crashed into a vehicle occupied by the four teen-age victims, who were celebrating the first day of Spring Break.
Blood tests results showed Brolly’s blood-alcohol content was 0.21 percent, more than twice the legal limit to drive, and an investigation found he had been drinking for several hours prior to the crash. The investigation also found Brolly was removed from a Philadelphia bar because he was heavily intoxicated, and prior to Brolly driving away from the establishment, his friends pleaded with him not to drive, even offering him an Uber and a place to stay.
In imposing sentence on Thursday, May 19, 2022, Common Pleas Judge Jeffrey L. Finley told Brolly, “You are a lucky man that you are not here facing numerous counts of homicide by vehicle.”
