Driver charged after car falls through ice, woman killed

Hartford

VERNON, Conn. (AP) – A Massachusetts man has been charged with negligent homicide with a motor vehicle after a car he was driving fell through the ice on a pond at a Connecticut state park, leaving one person dead.

The Hartford Courant reports 21-year-old Justin McAllise, of Southbridge, Massachusetts, appeared in a Rockville court on Tuesday. His case was continued to next month.

Authorities say the car traveled about 50 yards onto the ice on a pond at Bigelow Hollow State Park in Union before falling through on Jan. 12.

One of three passengers, 18-year-old Emily Blouin, of Southbridge, Massachusetts, was declared dead at the hospital.

Authorities obtained an arrest warrant after they say a lab testing of his blood showed he had smoked marijuana before the incident.

McAllise’s lawyer declined to comment.
