BELCHERTOWN, Mass. (WWLP) –  A pre-trial hearing is scheduled Tuesday for a man charged in connection with a deadly car accident in Belchertown.

Pre-trial hearing for driver in deadly Belchertown crash postponed

Eighteen-year-old Ryan Fellion was arraigned on a charge of negligent motor vehicle homicide back in August. His vehicle allegedly crossed over the center line of Route 9 last February, striking the car of Amherst resident Larry Kelley, who was killed instantly.

Tuesday’s hearing will be on a motion to access his cellphone security password.

If convicted, Fellion faces 2.5 years in jail, and the loss of his license for up to 15 years.
