Gregory McCoy, 27, of Dorchester, had bail set at $250,000 for his alleged role in the crash at Talbot and New England avenues last night that killed a teenage bicyclist, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports.
Dorchester Municipal Court Judge Thomas Kaplanes agreed with prosecutors' request for the bail on charges of motor vehicle homicide, leaving the scene of a collision causing death, leaving the scene of a collision causing serious bodily injury, negligent operation of a motor vehicle and unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle. At the request of Henning, Judge set bail at $250,000.
According to the DA's office:
[McCoy was driving a friendâ€™s white Cadillac on Norwell Street last night when he struck a silver BMW driven by a 33-year-old Dorchester man. Both cars then careened through the Talbot Street intersection, where the 18-year-old victim was struck and suffered fatal injuries.
The driver of the BMW suffered injuries that were serious but not life-threatening. He was transported to Boston Medical Center.
McCoy allegedly continued driving the Cadillac onto New England Avenue until it came to rest with the right rear wheel and axle completely disengaged from the vehicle. The owner and passenger of the vehicle suffered an injury to his leg and was transported to Boston Medical Center. McCoy allegedly fled on foot, leaving a blood trail from the scene to his neighborhood.
Boston Police arrested McCoy at his Wentworth Street residence early this morning.
Jess Idres shows us what's sprouted on one side of the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. As the museum explains:
Fenway Deity is part of the Garden Deities series created by Ken Smith. The large inflatable installation, with a psychedelic spiral pattern and gold chain, will hang from the historic faĂ§ade of the Museum facing the Boston Fens. Deity riffs on the Gardnerâ€™s large wheel window on the buildingâ€™s rear faĂ§ade, forming a transect line through the Museum, between the window and the installation. Spiritually speaking, Fenway Deity responds to the Museumâ€™s 2012 relocation of its entrance to Evans Way - it will serve as a new conduit for the Museumâ€™s creative energy to protect the Fens from bad spirits and promote environmental renewal, health, and happiness along the Fenway and beyond.
