Aaron Deveau, 17 years old at the time, was distracted while texting and driving. As a result, his car drifted across the center line on River Street in Haverville, MA, and struck the vehicle of Donald Bowley, 55, head-on.
A jury is now being selected at the Havervill, MA District Court, overseen by Judge Stephen Abany. Deveau is the first person to be prosecuted for motor vehicle homicide under a new state law that makes it a crime to drive and text at the same time. Deveau has pleaded not guilty.
