Roslindale man died at his own home in yesterday's Washington Street crash

Egidio D'Antuony, 60, a fleet manager for the Boston Parks Department, died yesterday when a driver plowed into him, his house, and another man at 3968 Washington St. in Roslindale yesterday afternoon, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports. The second victim, a 62-year-old man, was transported to a local hospital, the DA's office reports.
Like the job UHub is doing? Consider a contribution. Thanks!
What a tragedy. A year or two ago there was a crazy accident in front of that same house, where the driver hit the daughter and the mom getting groceries out and we never heard any follow-up since then.
I've always wondered about
I've always wondered about the story behind the occasional guard rails or concrete pillar I see on sidewalks in residential areas. It seems like a single instance like this should prompt a road and sidewalk redesign by the city. It's horrible that the same type of accident was allowed to happen twice.
My colleagues and I at the Parks Department received an email about this today. Egidio D'Antuony, literally only a couple of years from retirement, was considered an outgoing and outstanding worker. I never met the man but wish I had.
Outside of work, Egidio was considered to be an excellent neighbor who spent a lot of time on his front porch greeting neighbors and those just passing by. It would seem he died doing what he loved on his porch.
What a horrible tragedy and a wake up call that real change is needed on Boston's busiest roads.
Why isn't this in the Glob?
How does the Boston Globe not see this worth reporting on? A person can't stand in front of their home without being hit by a car? Three home page articles on the Pats and nothing about two cars crashing into buildings in one day.
Meanwhile, they seem to think Nashville is part of the Boston area. I agree that it's important news and my heart is broken, but it doesn't belong in the Metro section.
One man dead, another injured after vehicle crashes into Roslindale home
Thanks, wasn't there earlier
Glad to see they finally reported on it.
Judging from the (since removed) comments
The story had been up since at least 3:47 on Monday, 42 minutes after it was posted on UHub, likely longer (I wish they'd timestamp when a story is first posted in addition to when it was last updated). The comments have since been removed, as the Globe does sometimes when a story involves a death.
Odd, since I scrolled quite a way down the Metro section
Maybe it was posted but not showing in the first couple of pages?
Unnamed driver in jail,
Unnamed driver in jail, correct?
