A woman was killed and a man was badly injured in a crash in Acton, Massachusetts, early Tuesday morning.
The accident was reported around 12:27 a.m. on Central Street. Police and fire arrived and found a 2008 white Saturn in the driveway of 394 Central St. Both occupants of the vehicle had sustained serious injuries.
Thirty-nine-year-old Shannon Milhomme-Hoepers of Acton was taken by ambulance to Emerson Hospital in Concord where she was pronounced dead.
The driver of the Saturn, later identified as her husband, 35-year-old Deeiyvid Hoepers, was taken to Boston Medical Center via a medical helicopter with serious injuries. He has since been upgraded to serious but stable condition.
Hoepers was charged with motor vehicle homicide, operating under the influence of liquor, a second offense operating under the influence of liquor, negligent operation of a motor vehicle, and marked lanes violation.
Police said the vehicle appears to have been traveling on Central Street into Acton when it left the roadway, struck a wall and a telephone pole and ended up in the driveway against a vehicle that was parked there.
State police are assisting Acton Police with the accident investigation.
