Teenager killed in Bourne hit-and-run
BOURNE, Mass. -- A family on the Cape is suffering a tragic start to the new year.
A hit-and-run crash killed their son and the suspect is still on the loose. The crash happened early Friday morning in Bourne.
Andrew Dexter, 17, was just one mile away from home when he was struck and killed by a car.
Police in Bourne said they have unmistakable evidence that the accident was indeed a hit-and-run.
It took over five hours for someone to even notice Dexter’s body lying motionless behind a guardrail.
Bourne Police said there is no way whoever hit him would not have known.
“It would be a lot easier to handle if I knew the person had even made an attempt to try to save my son,” said Andrew Dexter Sr., the victim’s father.
Police believe they are looking for a 2002-2004 Ford Explorer that is missing a piece of its gray fender.
“It’s the front passenger side and also possibly a lower fog light underneath the main headlight would be broken out,” said Sgt. Dennis Woodside of the Bourne Police Department.
Police in Bourne have already reached out to body shops and other businesses in the area to be on the lookout for anyone seeking repairs to this damaged Ford Explorer-type vehicle.
