Norton Man Arraigned After Saturday Night Crash in Raynham
TAUNTON— An 18-year-old Norton man was arraigned in Taunton District Court Monday morning on charges related to a fatal motor vehicle crash, which occurred Saturday night in Raynham.
Devin Luc Larocque Thompson was arraigned on charges of motor vehicle homicide by negligent operation, marked lanes violation and negligent operation of a motor vehicle.
The Raynham Police and Fire Departments responded to the crash around 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, in the area of 491 Bradway (Route 138).
A preliminary investigation has revealed that Dawn Rodrigues, 42, of Brockton, was driving southbound in her Ford Focus when the defendant’s Chevy Silverado swerved into her lane of travel and struck her vehicle head-on. The Silverado pushed the Focus off the east side of the roadway into the yard of 496 Broadway. The Silverado then flipped, end over end onto its roof and came to rest on top of the hood of a Honda Civic.
The operator of the Civic was uninjured.
Firefighters had to use hydraulic rescue tools to free Dawn Rodrigues from the wreckage. Rodrigues was rushed to Good Samaritan Hospital where she was later pronounced dead.
Thompson was released on personal recognizance, was ordered to not drive during the pendency of the case and is due back in court for a pretrial hearing on January 28.
