At the start of HC’s show yesterday they played an intro with old(er) news bits and it ended with “oh where oh where has Howie gone, oh where oh where can he be?” I thought,
uh oh, maybe he isn’t coming back today after all and we’re
about to get Col. Hunt or a rerun. But no, they just played the wrong intro.
Remember the case of the 18 yr old in Saugus who ran over an elderly woman while driving drunk after the “alcohol free” prom?
>>But according to the four defendants statements to police, they decided to continue partying. After driving to Vokeys house, where Baldwin picked up nearly a case of beer, the four headed to Nahant Beach. At the beach, Vokeys girlfriend arrived and picked him up, leaving Baldwin, Palomba, and Caruso with the beer.
>>According to their statements, Baldwin and Palomba each consumed about five beers, and Caruso drank as many as six. The three were at the beach for about two hours. When they got into Carusos car, Baldwin asked Caruso if he was good. Caruso responded, Ya.
>>Moments later, police said, Caruso hit Carol Marean, who had been walking her dog with her daughter, Charlotte, 41, near Essex and Grove streets in Saugus. Marean was killed, and her daughter has since recovered from critical injuries.
Caruso told authorities at the scene that he had been drinking and that he had probably fallen asleep at the wheel.
>>According to statements Baldwin made to police, which were entered into court records, Caruso looked up immediately after the accident and said, What happened, not a problem. Baldwin said he told Caruso he had just hit two people and Caruso responded, No way, really?
