A Massachusetts man is being sought on a charge of leaving the scene of an accident in which several large wooden beams fell from his trailer on Route 27 in New Vineyard, killing a 55-year-old motorist.
The Franklin County Sheriff’s Department issued a warrant for
48-year-old Domingos Medeiros of Assonet, Mass. Police said an
examination of Medeiros’ truck in Massachusetts determined that it
was probably involved in the Wednesday evening accident that took
the life of Stephen McKenney of New Portland.
The falling timber also totaled another vehicle, but that driver
and her 10-year-old daughter escaped injury.
Investigators said they are unsure whether Medeiros was aware
that the beams had fallen from the trailer attached to his truck.
