Paraplegic driver accused of violation

By Associated Press

A paraplegic driver sent to prison for negligent manslaughter in the deaths of a Hagerstown couple has been arrested after allegedly driving again.

A condition of 31-year-old Matthew Meyer's probation was not to operate a motor vehicle in Maryland.

Meyer, of Ellicott City, was arrested last week in Howard County. He posted $10,000 bail.

According to court documents, Meyer was cited on June 29 and July 4 on motor vehicle offenses.

Meyer was paralyzed from the chest down in a 2000 crash in Pennsylvania. On Oct. 23, 2002, his car struck a pickup truck and killed Gerald and Mary Dietrich of Hagerstown, according to court records. Meyer was sentenced to seven years in prison.
