37-Year-Old Man Killed in Head-on Car Crash in Easton

There was no immediate word on what may have caused the fatal crash on Bay Road

A 37-year-old man was killed Sunday when his car was involved in a head-on crash with another vehicle in Easton, Massachusetts, according to local officials.

Scott A. Lewis, of South Easton, died from his injuries after his Kia and a Cadillac Escalade collided, the Bristol County District Attorney said.

Easton police and fire responded to the area of 539 Bay Road around 1:50 p.m. for a report of a head-on collision. First responders rendered aid to both victims involved in the crash, but Lewis was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the Escalade, identified as 25-year-old Jake McCabe of Easton, was transported to Boston Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

There's no immediate word on what may have caused the fatal crash.

Bay Road remained closed Sunday afternoon at the intersection with Dean Street to accommodate the ongoing investigation. 

On Monday, a criminal citation was issued to McCabe, requesting charges of motor vehicle homicide by negligent operation, marked lanes violation and unsafe operation of a motor vehicle be issued against him, according to the Bristol County District Attorney's office.

A hearing will be held on the matter at a later date in Taunton District Court, according to the district attorney's office.

The incident is being investigated by Massachusetts State Police, along with Easton Police detectives and the Bristol County District Attorney's Office.
