The August 2011 accident that claimed the life of a 70-year-old Westford woman will result in charges against a National Grid driver according to reports from the Boston Herald.
A National Grid driver will now face charges following an accident that claimed the life of a Westford woman on 495 in Southborough. WBZ reports that Jeffrey Fisher of Coventry, RI will be arraigned on Aug. 20 on charges of motor vehicle homicide in relation to the death of 70-year-old Westford resident Xiaoyun Jiang last summer. Jiang was pronounced dead on the scene after a backhoe fell off a National Grid truck Fisher was driving and onto the car of 42-year-old Westford resident Yingzi Wang, who also recieved medical attention along with Jiang and two other passengers. Jiang's family had previously sued National Grid, which according to the WBZ report, admits it had been test driving the truck due to safety concerns.
