Married couple killed in Easton car crash

The driver of another vehicle allegedly fled the scene on foot.

EASTON, Mass. (AP) — Authorities say a married couple has been killed in a crash with another vehicle whose driver fled the scene on foot.

A spokesman for the Bristol district attorney says the crash occurred just after 6 p.m. Thursday at Route 138 and Purchase Street in Easton.

The victims were identified as 79-year-old John Masefield and 77-year-old Virginia Masefield, of East Bridgewater.

Authorities say it appears 33-year-old Sheri Vazquez, of Easton, was speeding on Route 138 when she collided with the Masefields vehicle as it attempted to turn.

Police say she ran from the scene but was caught a short time later. She faces several charges including with leaving the scene and motor vehicle homicide. She was taken to the hospital as a precaution. It was unclear if she had an attorney.
