Shirley, MA (July 8, 2018) – Previously we brought you the story of a DUI crash in Shirley, Massachusetts that claimed the life of one woman. The crash occurred on June 28 when a vehicle, driving by 39 year old Victoria Marble, crossed the center at 134 Great Road and struck another vehicle head on. Marble was later arrested and charged with OUI.
The other driver, who died at the hospital, has now been identified as Rebecca Allen of Lunenburg, Massachusetts. Allen was out that evening with a friend, Tom Senn. Senn was a passenger in Allen’s vehicle. He also suffered serious injuries, including nine broken ribs along with hip and foot injuries. Senn is still in the hospital at this time as he recovers from his injuries. Allen’s funeral is scheduled for Saturday, July 7th.
Massachusetts OUI Crashes
We extend our thoughts to the friends and family of Rebecca Allen. Ms. Allen was taken too soon by the senseless and reckless actions of another driver. OUI crashes are preventable, which is what makes them so frustrating to victims. With ride sharing services available, along with traditional taxis and the proliferation of smart phones, a ride is just one phone call away. There is no excuse for getting behind the wheel of a vehicle if you are impaired. This action risks not only the life of the driver but all others on the roadway.
If you have been injured in a Massachusetts OUI case you are entitled to recover for your injuries including: pain and suffering caused by the accident, medical bills, lost wages from time missed at work and potentially punitive damages. Punitive damages are a special type of monetary compensation which are awarded in cases of extremely negligent or reckless behavior. Driving under the influence can be an example of this type of behavior and may support a punitive damage award. You need an experienced lawyer to assist with these issues.
