Drunk driver who left the scene of several accidents arrested in Holliston

Members of the Holliston Police Department arrested 35-year-old Holliston, Massachusetts resident Christopher Pope at his 1707 Washington Street residence around 6:29 a.m., said prosecutor Daniel Storms during Pope’s arraignment on Tuesday, December 27 in Framingham District Court.

Police said witnesses saw the pickup truck, which had a plow attached, that Pope had been driving pull into his driveway on the day of his arrest. He had hit several vehicles, including a semi-truck, with that plow. Pope was charged with operating a vehicle while under the influence of liquor, leaving the scene of an accident that caused personal injury, reckless driving, driving an uninsured vehicle, and driving an unregistered vehicle.

Storms made a request to Judge Jennifer Stark to hold Pope on a $1,000 bail. Pope’s legal counsel, Kenneth Gross, on the other hand, asked for a more lenient bail, as Pope is the breadwinner of his family and a bail set at too high an amount can negatively impact their lives.

One dies in Pike County two-vehicle collision

A two-vehicle collision that happened Tuesday, November 29 on Kentucky Route 194 near Kimper Elementary School in Pike County, Kentucky resulted in the death of one individual.

According to an interview of the Kentucky State Police with East Kentucky Broadcasting, a pickup truck had a head-on collision with a gravel truck along that expanse of road. The two people, who were ejected from both vehicles, were first taken to Pikeville Medical Center in Pikeville and were transferred to UK Hospital in Lexington. The Fayette County Coroner identified the person who eventually died because of the accident as 24-year-old Jerry Leedy, the driver of the pickup truck. Leedy appeared not to be wearing his seat belt at the time of the accident, but alcohol does not appear to be a factor in the accident.

As state police continue to investigate the accident, the attorneys at Wilson & McQueen, PLLC want to send condolences to those hurt by this accident and similar occurrences across Kentucky.
