The Dorchester Reporter reports prominent Boston lawyer William McDermott was struck and killed by an SUV as he tried to walk across Day Boulevard at L Street in South Boston Wednesday evening.
The Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports McDermott was hit by a Ranger Rover driven by a 33-year-old South Boston man:
State Police responded to the scene at about 7:30 after the operator called 911; he remained at the scene and did not show signs of intoxication. The investigation will entail a reconstruction of the crash by the State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section and a search for surveillance cameras and other evidence by detectives. No charges have been brought as of this morning but interviews are ongoing and the probe remains very active at this hour.
