SANDWICH – The driver of a pickup truck involved in a fatal crash earlier this week on Route 6 in Sandwich will be charged with motor vehicle homicide and other charges.
The Massachusetts State Police sought a summons this afternoon in Barnstable District Court charging Michael Dalto, 45, of East Bridgewater with motor vehicle homicide, negligent operation, impeded operation, marked lanes violation and speeding.
State Police said Dalto became distracted as a result of his own actions while driving his pickup truck eastbound on Route 6.
Dalto’s truck crossed the median and struck a Honda Accord traveling eastbound killing Lawrence Barrows, 32, of Centerville.
No further details will be released pending Dalto’s appearance in Barnstable District Court.
The investigation by troopers from the Bourne Barracks was assisted by State Police Crime Scene Services Section and the State Police Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section.
