It is so funny I just blogged about this Beverly Police officer that was involved in a crash that killed a lady. It was in my last post. I log onto WBZ.com and there is a story about him.
Stuart Merry was convicted in March of killing a woman after his car crashed into her PARKED car. Merry argued that he had a seizure. Unfortunately for him the facts didn't support that claim. His head made a crack in the windshield proving that he was in a sitting position upon impact. Oh and then there was the fact that he had no history (past or present) of seizures.
The gist of the article is that he wants the case dismissed on a technicality. Some totally off the wall reason about the prosecution not asking questions about something. Doesn't even make any sense but the law is not about common sense it is about who is the bigger manipulator.
The part of the case that still has me very confused is he did not have a valid drivers license. This was reported in the original article but not in this one. How in the world can a police officer be on duty in a police car without a license. The Beverly Police department has to be responsible for this one.
(WBZ) BEVERLY A police officer is facing charges of negligent vehicular homicide in connection with a crash that killed a woman. State police cited Patrolman Stuart Merry on the misdemeanor charge, as well as with speeding, failing to stay within marked lanes and driving without a license.
