CANTON, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — A 28-year-old New Hampshire man is facing more than half a dozen charges after he allegedly struck a woman with a car on Route 95 in a suspected domestic assault.
Massachusetts State Troopers responded shortly before 10:30 p.m. Tuesday to a report of a pedestrian struck by a motor vehicle on Route 95 northbound, prior to the Route 93 exit, in Canton.
Troopers found a 35-year-old New Hampshire woman with serious injures. She was transported by Canton EMS to Boston Medical Center. Police said her injuries and not believed to be life threatening at this time.
"Investigation indicates that the incident was a domestic assault that involved a man and the female victim standing outside their Ford Focus in the breakdown lane," MSP said. "At one point in the incident, the male re-entered the vehicle and began to drive. As he did so he struck the female."
Police said the driver remained on scene. He was arrested by Troopers and transported to State Police-Foxboro, where he was booked on assault and battery charges. He is expected to be arraigned Wednesday in Stoughton District Court.
MSP said his name is not being released in adherence to a state law that prohibits police from identifying defendants in domestic arrests in order to protect the privacy of their victims.
He is facing more than half a dozen charges; Assault and battery on a family or household member; Assault and battery with a dangerous weapon; Violation of abuse prevention order; Intimidation of a witness; OUI-Liquor 2nd offense; Negligent operation of a motor vehicle; and Unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle.
