College Student Killed in Lakeville Crash

Police say a Middleborough woman was drunk and on heroin when her pickup truck struck another vehicle over the weekend, killing the 18-year-old college freshman driving.

Kathleen Allen was held on $100,000 bail after pleading not guilty Monday in Wareham District Court to charges including drunken driving and motor vehicle homicide.

Police say the 23-year-old Allen struck another vehicle head-on Route 44 in Lakeville just after 2 a.m. Saturday.

The driver of that other vehicle, 18-year-old Monica Demello of Middleborough, was pronounced dead at the scene. Allen’s passenger was injured and flown to a Boston hospital.

Demello was a freshman at Gordon College in Wenham visiting her family for Easter.

Gordon College President D. Michael Lindsay called Demello’s death “a tragedy and a shock” to the entire community. [Associated Press]
