SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) - Two deadly pedestrian accidents, with one thing in common. Springfield Police tell 22News that the same man was behind the wheel.
It was just before 8:00PM on Tuesday night, when police say Ale Moultrie hit and killed a 60-year-old Springfield man with his Ford F-150 pickup truck in front of 33 Plainfield Street in the city's North End.
According to Springfield Police Sgt. John Delaney, it's familiar situation for Moultrie.
It was in February of 2012 when Moutrie allegedly hit and killed Sheila Wheeler in a crosswalk in West Springfield between the Eastern States Exposition Grounds and Lattitude Restaurant.
People told 22News they're confused why it was able to happen again.
"We do rely on the courts and the legal system for justice, and we're all kind of wondering where the justice is," said Nina Mozdzanowski of Agawam.
West Springfield Police Captain Thomas Wilkinson told 22News he wasn't sure if charges where ever brought against Moultrie. He said officers presented their findings to the District Attorney's Office, and that it would have been up to them to file charges.
"Well I think he should be arrested and go to court and be tried and see why, when, how, if. All the questions asked," said Marilyn Carr of Agawam.
People told 22News that whether Moultrie was charged or not, the fact that it happened twice is frightening.
"Especially for me. My wife, she's handicapped. So crossing the street for her is sometimes an issue. She takes it very slow and to know that there's people like that who would run somebody over. It's very scary," said Juan Fumero of Springfield.
22News also called the Springfield Police Department on Wednesday night. They we're not able to confirm the name of Tuesday night's victim, or say if Moultrie has been charged in that accident.
