Boston EMS Incidents reports the crash happened shortly after 5:30 p.m. at A Street and Broadway. Live Boston reports the fatal-crash reconstruction team and the homicide unit were called in due to the severity of the victim's injuries.
Homicide at a cycle crash. Why?
Because the Boston Police Department does not have another unit that investigates non-natural deaths?
People fuck with bikes all the time....
If a car driver hit this motorcycle and the motorcyclist subsequently dies, wouldn't you consider that a homicide?
(Not a homicide if this was a "one-bike" accident, but we may not know that yet.)
I came upon the scene right after it happened and it looked like the biker was most likely going straight through the intersection on A Street and was hit by an SUV turning left from A onto Broadway. The front of the SUV was pretty destroyed as was the bike.
Good point. Homicide just means a person killed by another person. It is a fairly common misconception that homicide = murder.
This is my friend, he was killed by a man talking on a cell phone while driving. A person who was an amazing selfless genuinely kind young man is gone now. What phone call is worth a life, senseless homicide by car for sure
Sorry to hear about you losing your friend. Was he local to Southie? I’ve seen the memorial set up this week at the corner of A st & Broadway.
Okay, I can see that.
