SUV driver sought in fatal Mass. hit-and-run
MIDDLEBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Police in southeastern Massachusetts are seeking the public’s help in identifying an SUV driver wanted in the hit-and-run death of a 58-year-old man.
Authorities say Michael Dutra was struck at about 7 p.m. Friday as he was riding or walking his bike along Wood Street in his hometown of Middleborough. Police are looking for a light-colored SUV that may have front-end damage and its driver.
Dutra’s daughter, Michelle Dutra, told the Boston Herald her father had a liver transplant in 1991 and nearly died last year from complications, but regained his health. She says her father was on a trip to a store to buy food when he was killed.
Michelle Dutra said her family is devastated by her father’s death and can’t understand why the SUV driver didn’t stop.
