Bristol pair remain in critical condition after hitting backhoe
BRISTOL — Two Bristol residents remained in critical condition late Wednesday after a collision between their SUV and a state backhoe on Route 104 on Monday.
Both are expected to survive, and both are facing charges when they get well, police said. The driver faces a gun charge and potentially drugged-driving charges.
A 2004 Dodge Durango operated by Jason Brown, 29, of 140 School St., crossed the yellow line striking a state John Deere backhoe head-on.
An investigation was conducted into the accident, and “charges will be forthcoming for Jason Brown for operating a motor vehicle with a suspended license, as a habitual offender, and as a felon in possession of a firearm,” Bean said.
“I can’t discuss what was found, but we found evidence after the accident that drug use was ongoing in the vehicle,” Bean said.
“She made several reports to police after the accident that were false,” Bean said, declining to elaborate.
