Massachusetts man charged in motorcycle accident

Twenty-three-year-old Burlington, Massachusetts resident Patrick Litchfield has been charged with multiple criminal offenses in relation to a hit-and-run motorcycle accident that occurred on Route 25 in Gorham, Maine on Monday, October 5 at around 7 a.m. and caused injuries to 37-year-old Hiram resident Jonathan Lord.

Gorham police arrested Litchfield and charged him with reckless conduct with a dangerous weapon, leaving the scene of a personal injury crash, possession of heroin, criminal speeding, driving to endanger, driving after his license was revoked, and trafficking in dangerous knives.

According to Lieutenant Christopher Sanborn, Officer Robert Henckel had been patrolling Route 25 when a gold-colored sedan traveling at 85 miles per hour in a 50 mph zone came zooming past him in the opposite direction.

Henckel said he turned his police cruiser around to question the speeding driver, but he stopped when he found Lord and his battered motorcycle resting beside the road.

Boston man guilty of fatal pedestrian accident

Boston resident Michael Tranchita received a guilty verdict on November 17 in a bench trial at Salem Superior Court for leaving the scene of a personal injury accident that resulted in death, the Associated Press reported.

The conviction was in relation to a January 2007 accident, in which two pedestrians were struck and killed by Tranchita’s pick-up truck. The pedestrians were identified as 33-year-old Stoneham resident Tina Tello and 28-year-old Everett local Christopher Zullo. The two were attempting to cross U.S. Route 1 in Saugus, although there was no pedestrian crossing in the area.

Evidence proved that Tranchita was driving the vehicle that killed the pedestrians. Two unidentified parties were also convicted of misleading the police, likely to cover for Tranchita.
