Early Sunday morning, a car crash in Boston killed a passenger and injured a 49-year-old Worcester man, who remains in critical condition at Massachusetts General Hospital. The car accident victim was driving a 1978 MG Midget when his vehicle was hit head-on by an allegedly drunk driver in a black 1995 Jeep Brand Cherokee.
The auto accident occurred around 1:45am on the turnpike near the Prudential center tunnel in Boston.
The alleged wrong-way drunk driver was held in $100,000 cash bail. The driver allegedly tried to flee the scene of the motor vehicle accident by running down I-90. He was not injured in the crash and pleaded not guilty to charges of motor vehicle homicide while driving under the influence of alcohol, negligent driving, driving under the influence of alcohol causing serious bodily harm, and driving a motor vehicle the wrong way.
