Fatal car accident in Massachusetts result of OWI

Any time a life is lost in a car accident, the outcome is tragic for those close to the victim. Such accidents also serve to remind the rest of us how fragile life can be. Some crashes are so terrible that they elicit a stronger response from the community. Such is the case in a recent Massachusetts car accident that took the life of one woman and brought severe injury to a man, both of whom were passengers in the vehicle.

The preliminary investigation suggests that a 29-year-old man was driving on a recent weekday evening while extremely intoxicated. Within his vehicle were a 28-year-old woman and a 30-year-old man. The female passenger died as a result of injuries sustained in the crash, and the male passenger is hospitalized with life-threatening injuries.

The driver is believed to have lost control of his vehicle on Plain Street in Brockton. He left the road and struck a stone wall, causing the vehicle to flip and land on a tree. Witnesses report hearing the car approach and that the sound was similar to that of a jet. The crash scene shocked many nearby residents, one of whom claimed that it was the worst accident he has ever seen. That level of shock may continue as residents learn that the driver has multiple criminal convictions, including some related to speeding and vehicle theft.

Police have charged the driver with manslaughter as well as operating under the influence of alcohol and speeding. He is also charged with reckless driving, resisting arrest and battery of a police officer, among other lesser charges. He is currently being held in a local jail on a $250,000 bail, and he has pleaded not guilty in the case.

The family of the woman killed in this car accident is likely overwhelmed with grief, and struggling to come to terms with a crash that could have been prevented. The man injured in the wreck continues to receive medical treatment, and there was no mention of his prognosis in a news report. Both he and the family of the deceased have the option of moving forward with Massachusetts civil suits against the driver.
