Lawyer for man charged in fatal crash seeks case dismissal
The Associated Press
NASHUA — A lawyer for a New Hampshire man charged in a fatal car collision last year has filed two motions to dismiss the case.
Kyle Witty of Cornish was charged with manslaughter following the July 16, 2014, crash at an intersection in Merrimack that killed 60-year-old Nashua resident Elizabeth McQuinn.
County attorneys said 44-year-old Witty ran a red light in a dump truck carrying a load of stone and collided with the driver's side of McQuinn's SUV.
The Valley News reports attorney Richard Guerriero says Witty's failure to stop at a red light wasn't reckless because he says the traffic signal wasn't readable from a state-mandated distance. He says Witty's view of the signal was blocked by trees.
A trial date has been set for Nov. 30.
