Police probe Dover official's fatal car crash
Martin J. Carignan, 87, of 22 Tates Brook Road, was pronounced dead Tuesday at 3:10 p.m. in Massachusetts General Hospital — a day after the crash near Weeden's home on Sixth Street.
Police Capt. Bill Breault said in fatal crashes it typically takes several weeks to determine what factors contributed.
Strafford County Attorney Thomas Velardi said it is much too early to make a determination. He said every case is different and not all accidents result in charges or convictions.
"It's another collision and we have to determine whether there are any criminal aspects of the case," Velardi said.
Weeden suffered minor injuries in the crash. Carignan was sent to Wentworth-Douglass Hospital in Dover before being transferred to the Boston hospital Tuesday for serious head injuries.
