BROCKTON – A Duxbury woman has been indicted on charges that she left the scene of a crash where a woman was killed, Plymouth District Attorney Timothy J. Cruz has announced.
A Plymouth County Grand Jury today returned indictments charging Kristina Blackmore (DOB: 10/07/80) of Duxbury, with one count each of Leaving the Scene of Injury Causing Death, and Motor Vehicle Homicide by Negligent Operation.
On June 9 at approximately 6:37 pm, the Duxbury Police Department received multiple 911 calls for a pedestrian struck in the area of 641 Washington Street in Duxbury. Police, fire and emergency personnel responded and located a female victim unresponsive on the ground. Medical personnel performed life-saving measures and the victim was transported to South Shore Hospital for treatment before succumbing to her injuries two days later. She was identified as 46 year-old Andrea Gordon of Duxbury.
Duxbury Police and State Police Detectives assigned to the Plymouth County District Attorney’s Office conducted an investigation and determined through witness interviews and evidence collected at the scene, that the vehicle that struck Gordon was a Dodge Ram pickup truck. Investigators located the Dodge Ram pickup with damage at a home in Duxbury and State Police obtained an arrest warrant for Blackmore.
Blackmore is currently out on bail under conditions that she surrender her passport and does not operate a motor vehicle. She will be arraigned in superior court on the charges at a later date.
