BOXBOROUGH — Chief Warren B. Ryder reports that Boxborough Police arrested and charged a man with OUI following a crash Thursday night.
DAVID TAYLOR, AGE 57, OF BOXBOROUGH was charged with:
- OUI Liquor
- Marked Lanes Violation
- Failure to Stop at Stop Sign
At approximately 8:14 p.m. on Thursday, May 21, Boxborough Police and Fire responded to a motor vehicle crash at North Cemetery on Hill Road.
A subsequent investigation revealed that a Chevrolet Camaro was allegedly traveling west on Middle Road at a high rate of speed and then left the roadway, crossing Hill Road and crashing into the flagpole and the Boxborough Bell at the entrance to the cemetery.
The operator, later identified as TAYLOR, and a passenger did not report any injuries.
As a result of the crash, the flag pole was knocked down and the Boxborough Bell, a piece originally mounted in the old Boxborough Library and rescued from a fire in 1953, was dislodged from its base.
TAYLOR was released on personal recognizance bail and will likely be arraigned today in Ayer District Court.
These are allegations. All suspects are considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
