Bourne police say they have filed misdemeanor motor vehicle homicide charges against the driver who struck a Duxbury man in Bourne last week.
Heather MacDonald, of West Dennis, has been summonsed to Falmouth District Court to face charges of motor vehicle homicide, negligent operation, according to the Bourne Police. She had already been charged with failure to yield and operating to endagner before the victim died.
Kevin Thomas Barclay, 52, of Wadsworth Road, was involved in a scooter accident last Thursday, according to his family. He succumbed to severe head injuries on Monday, June 15.
A report in the Cape Cod Times said that Barclay was riding his motor scooter through a rotary at around 11 a.m. when a car entered without yielding, and the scooter hit the side of the car, the police said. He was transported to Brigham & Womenâ€™s Hospital in Boston, where a spokesperson Monday said he was in the intensive care unit.
A family member wrote in his obituary that he loved deep sea fishing, clamming in Duxbury Bay, making jewelry from seashells in his fabrication shop in Kingston.
â€œHis life was dedicated to keeping things simple, keeping stress low, and making other people happy with his infectious smile and sometimes rambling stories,â€ the obituary stated.
