PLYMOUTH – A Plymouth woman has been convicted for leaving the scene of a 2017 crash that left a 23 year-old man dead, Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy J. Cruz has announced.
After a two-day bench trial in Plymouth Superior Court, Judge Jeffrey Locke found Jean Marie Grupillion (DOB: 06/29/85) of Plymouth, guilty of one count of leaving the scene of an accident causing personal injury resulting in death. Grupillion is scheduled to be sentenced on August 2 at 2 pm. Just after 12:30 am on August 6, 2017, Plymouth Police received several 911 calls reporting a motor vehicle versus pedestrian crash on Route 3A in the Manomet section of Plymouth. The male victim, identified as 23 year-old Marcus Osborne of Middleboro, had been struck and the vehicle left the scene. Osborne was taken to Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital in Plymouth before he was transported to Boston Medical Center where he died of blunt force trauma injuries. Plymouth Police investigators recovered parts of the vehicle at the scene and determined that the vehicle involved was a gray Honda Pilot. They found the vehicle parked at a home a distance away. Investigators found that the Honda Pilot sustained damage consistent with the crash and parts found at the scene.
The case was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Russell Eonas and was investigated by the Plymouth Police and State Police CARS.
