Town Administrator Charged in Crash That Injured Pregnant Woman

A Hanson town administrator has been charged with his second drunk driving offense after a crash in North Attleboro that left a pregnant woman injured. 52-year-old Michael McCue has been placed on administrative leave following his arrest.

Police responded to reports of a crash at the intersection of Park Street and Route 1 shortly before 5 p.m. last Wednesday. Two witnesses told officers that they saw a car being driven by McCue fail to stop at an intersection before crashing into a car driven by a pregnant woman.

McCue was driving a work vehicle owned by the Town of Hanson at the time of the crash. He told an officer that he was driving home to Manfield after a meeting in Sturbridge.

The pregnant woman was hospitalized at Sturdy Memorial Hospital for treatment. She was worried about damage to her fetus, as an airbag deployed and hit her in the stomach.

McCue has been charged with OUI Alcohol - Second Offense, Operator to Endanger, and Failure to Yield at an Intersection. His first OUI Alcohol arrest was in 1995.

Legal Options For People Injured by Drunk Drivers in Massachusetts

Attorney contributor Kim Dougherty represents victims of drunk driving crashes, helping them secure the financial compensation they deserve through lawsuits. Here is Kim with some general information concerning the legal options available to people hit by drunk drivers in Massachusetts:

When a drunk driver causes an accident that injures other people, those injured may be entitled to financial compensation. The available options for this compensation depend on the state and the circumstances of the crash. In every state, people injured in alcohol-related crashes may file personal injury lawsuits against the driver. Massachusetts is one of several states which allow people who have been injured by drunk drivers to file lawsuits against alcohol vendors, under certain conditions.

In Massachusetts, alcohol vendors can be sued for injuries caused by their customers if the vendor continued serving alcohol to the customer after they'd become visibly intoxicated. This means that people who have been injured by drunk drivers can sue the establishment that served the drunk driver if the establishment had overserved the driver before the crash.

Each drunk driving injury case is unique and determining your legal options will likely require legal guidance. You can learn more by discussing your case with an experienced drunk driving crash victims lawyer.
