A drunk driver is everyone’s nightmare. Someone under the influence, on the road, driving at high speed, can mean the absolute worst for the other drivers. At Colucci, Colucci & Marcus, P.C., our Boston car accident lawyers want to discuss a recent accident in Boston. A drunk driver caused a wreck injuring multiple people, and it could have been much worse.
What Happened In This Boston Car Collision
In November of 2019, Jonathan Markow was driving northbound through Reading when he struck a Fiat 500 and a Honda Ridgeline, causing those cars to collide with others resulting in a collision. Police and firefighters had to respond, and five people were taken to hospitals.
But what the police didn’t realize is that earlier Markow had driven through Wakefield earlier, causing a wreck there, and fled the scene, soon arriving in Reading to cause more havoc. Markow hit a total of five vehicles in two towns across Massachusetts.
Markow was taken to the hospital and put under police guard while police investigated both crashes in Wakefield and Reading.
Markow’s behavior could have caused not only more injuries, but he could have caused tragic accidents resulting in death due to his inebriated condition. All it took was for Markow to not get behind the wheel to prevent these tragedies.
