BROCKTON — Massachusetts State Police Detectives along with Brockton Police continue to investigate a car crash that left a West Bridgewater woman dead, Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy J. Cruz has announced.

At approximately 3:17 p.m. yesterday, Brockton Police received several 911 calls for reports of a three-car crash at the intersection of Route 123 and Pearl Street. A Massachusetts State Police trooper was first on-scene, with Brockton Police and Fire responding shortly thereafter. First responders determined Kimberly Shirosky, 54, of West Bridgewater to be dead at the scene. A second driver of a Ford pickup truck declined medical treatment.

Preliminarily, the investigation revealed that a black Acura TX being operated by John Medeiros, 30, of New Bedford, was traveling at a high rate of speed and failed to stop at a red light in the intersection when he struck the white motor vehicle being driven by Shirosky. Following the crash, Medeiros became disorderly with responding officers on scene. At this time, Medeiros is charged with one count each of Reckless Motor Vehicle Homicide, Reckless Causing Death, Disorderly Conduct, Resisting Arrest, Speeding, and Failure to Stop/Yield. Medeiros remains hospitalized at Boston Medical Center. His arraignment on the charges is pending.

The investigation is ongoing.
