Brother talks about losing mother, sister in fatal crash
PLYMOUTH, Mass. (WHDH) -- A family member mourning the death of a mother and sister lost in a deadly crash spoke out on Sunday.
A Massachusetts State Police Officer is facing charges. He’s accused of driving drunk and causing the crash that killed the two women. Michael Macchi lost his mother and sister.
Susan Macchi and Juliet Macchi took their last photo together at a Red Sox game.
“She was remarkably close to my mom,” Macchi said of his sister.
The two were killed after leaving the Red Sox came. Police said Susan had veered into oncoming traffic.
"You know what," says Michael Macchi who lost his mother and sister, "I know what I need to know about it. My mother and my sister are gone. That's all I need to know to tell you the truth."
A week later investigators say they are still reviewing what happened. They now say the second car was being driven by an off duty State Police officer who was armed at the time. He's being charged with operating under the influence.
The mother and daughter had planned to move together to California in two weeks. Juliet was a Harvard graduate and dreamed of becoming a filmmaker.
“To be honest I have never seen her speak unkind words,” Macchi said.
White roses were left outside the door of the house in Carver where neighbors are still reeling.
“Crazy. Just crazy. This mother, daughter should be alive,” said one neighbor.
Massachusetts State Police said the 25-year-old state trooper involved in this has been temporarily relieved of duties. They will schedule a hearing in the coming week to determine whether he will be suspended or lose his job.
