From J J Lehto's wiki entry

"On June 17, 2010, Lehto was involved in a boating accident in Ekenäs. The accident happened when the boat carrying Lehto and his friend, whose identity has not been released, hit the base of a bridge. Lehto was injured and the other passenger was killed in the accident.[3][4] Lehto was drunk at the time. Later in August, 7 Päivää-magazine reported that Järvilehto had attended his friend's funeral.[5] Järvilehto has not issued official interviews or statements since the incident. In January 2011, Iltasanomat reported that the police investigations had determined that no-one besides Järvilehto could have been driving the boat at the time of the accident.[6]"

"On December 14, 2011, Järvilehto was sentenced to prison for 2 years and 4 months (Pending appeal and denies all charges).[10]"
