Driver Cited for Motor Vehicle Homicide in Death of Savannah Curran
HOLBROOK — Chief William J. Smith reports that the Holbrook Police Department has cited a Scituate man who allegedly struck and killed a 4-year-old girl in October last year on Fargo Road.
ROBERT A. JOHNSON, AGE 55, OF SCITUATE is facing misdemeanor charges of:
- Motor Vehicle Homicide by Negligent Operation
- Impeded Operation of a Motor Vehicle
- Driving Negligently so as to Endanger
The charges come after the State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section (CARS) recently completed their investigation and report on the crash.
As a result of the investigation, the charges were filed on Tuesday, Feb. 20 and a citation was issued to JOHNSON.
On Saturday Oct. 7 at approximately 1 p.m., Holbrook Police received multiple 911 calls reporting that a child had been struck by a Comcast bucket truck.
Savannah Curran was struck just outside of her home on Fargo Road and died a short time later from her injuries.
JOHNSON stayed at the scene and was cooperative with police.
JOHNSON will have a clerk magistrate’s hearing at Quincy District Court at a later date.
These are allegations. All suspects are innocent until proven guilty.
