McNally died and Stotts suffered injuries that continue to keep him off the job. At the time, Stotts was responding to a report of an officer in trouble. The board said Stotts entered the intersection of West Broadway and D Street at 52 m.p.h. even though his view of the intersection was obscured.
In July, the Suffolk County DA's office determined that McNally was not at fault but that it could not bring charges against Stotts because of state laws on responsibility when an officer is responding in an emergency. However, the DA's office called on Boston Police to review its emergency-response procedures.
It is up to Commissioner Ed Davis to determine whether Stotts is disciplined.
