Motorist charged in fatal ambulance crash

I have several posts on this blog in reference to an ambulance crash that killed paramedic Allan Parsons and seriously injured EMT/driver Arlene Greenleaf.

Today the Associated Press reported the driver of the vehicle that struck the ambulance was intoxicated and has been indicted for manslaughter and operating under the influence of alcohol at nearly twice the legal limit (0.15% BAC).

TURNER - A 30-year-old Turner man has been indicted on charges of manslaughter and drunken driving arising from an early morning crash last summer in Turner that killed a paramedic while he was tending a patient en route to the hospital.

Christopher Boutin is accused of crashing his pickup truck into an ambulance on Route 4, killing 46-year-old Allan Parsons of Wilton. The ambulance driver and Boutin were seriously injured.

Investigators said Boutin was drunk at the time of the July 5 crash and failed to yield to the ambulance, which had its emergency lights on.

The indictment handed up Thursday said Boutin's blood-alcohol level was more than 0.15, which is nearly twice the legal limit for drunken driving.

My continued heartfelt sympathy goes out to the Parsons family. My sincerest wishes for continued, speedy recovery to Arlene Greenleaf and her family. Although nearly 6 months have passed, the impact of this crash will be ever present for these families over the holiday season.
