In Attleboro, Massachusetts, a 24-year old driver of a sport utility vehicle died after colliding with a Jeep on Thatcher Street last Wednesday night.
Randy Cummings was driving east on Thatcher Street around 11:45 pm when he rear-ended the Jeep, which was driven by Sean M. Caponigro, 31, of Attleboro. Cummings’ car continued several hundred feet before hitting a cement wall. He was pronounced dead at the scene of the car accident.
Police suspect that Cummings may have been speeding and may have been driving under the influence of alcohol, but they will not know more until they receive the results of the toxicology tests and work with state police reconstruction experts to determine how fast he was driving.
The motor vehicle accident is under investigation by Massachusetts state police detectives and the Bristol County District Attorney’s Office.
