BOXFORD, Mass. — Authorities have identified a Massachusetts man who police say was killed in a crash caused by a drunken driver over the weekend on Interstate 95.
Police say a Saturn operated by 45-year-old Geoffrey Stevens, of Newburyport, was in the breakdown lane on Saturday in Boxford when it was struck by a Chevrolet operated by 22-year-old Nathaniel Armstrong, of Amesbury. Police say the Chevrolet then went off the road and into the nearby woods.
Stevens was taken to an area hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Armstrong and his passenger weren’t injured.
Armstrong is facing charges of motor vehicle homicide, operating under the influence of liquor and related crimes. He’s expected to be arraigned on Monday. It’s unclear if he has an attorney who can comment.
