A 22-year-old driver has been charged in the Worcester, Massachusetts car crash that left two people dead. A prosecutor says that Robert J. Curran was allegedly driving at 80-100 mph at around 2am when he struck the vehicle transporting 19-year-old Joel Rodriguez and 18-year-old Andres Guzman. Also injured in the Massachusetts car accident was 19-year-old Jesus Molina, who was riding in the car with Guzman and Rodriguez.
Curran, a Grafton resident, is accused of then stopping at the Worcester County traffic accident site but then leaving. He faces charges involving negligent driving, motor vehicle homicide, leaving the scene of an accident where there has been a fatality, personal injury, and property damage, speeding, and operating a vehicle while having a suspended license.
Curran, who is hospitalized at UMass Memorial Medical Center-University Campus over his injuries, has pleaded guilty to all the charges. He reportedly left the Worcester motor vehicle accident site after paramedics arrived. He then went to a Webster hospital where he told staff that he was hurt during a brawl at a bar.
Motorists are not supposed to leave a Massachusetts car accident. This means that they cannot stop momentarily and then take off-especially if anyone else involved in the crash got hurt or died.
If you or someone you loved was injured in a traffic accident that was caused by another party, you should speak with a Boston injury lawyer right away. Massachusetts motor vehicle accidents can cause traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, organ damage, disfigurement, back and neck injuries, and wrongful death.
You may be entitled to Boston personal injury compensation for medical bills, lost wages, property damage, funeral costs, burial expenses, and other damages.
