Negligent homicide charge in fatal Claremont crash


A Massachusetts man has been indicted on negligent homicide charges involving drunk driving for a car crash that killed a Vermont woman earlier this month.

Luke Garlinger, 29, of Mansfield, Mass., was arrested and charged April 10 with negligent homicide after an April 7 car crash on Main Street in Claremont that claimed the life of Shellie Blaisdell, 42, of Windsor, Vt.

Just before the midnight accident, a state trooper driving west on Main Street reported seeing Garlinger's Toyota Tacoma pickup traveling 80 mph, according to the affidavit.

The trooper had just turned his cruiser around to pursue the truck when he came upon the crash, police said.

A Sullivan County grand jury indicted him last week on negligent homicide and negligent homicide-DWI. He was also indicted on a second-degree assault for causing serious bodily injury to Blaisdell's passenger, the 14-year-old boy.
