WOBURN – A Lawrence man accused of hitting two cars in a drunk driving accident on I-93 in Stoneham over the weekend appeared in court on Monday to face a judge.
Albert Vasquez, 29, was in Woburn District Court to face motor vehicle charges, including operating under the influence.
Police say Vasquez struck a Massachusetts State Police cruiser and a tow truck that were responding to a deadly crash in Stoneham.
Before Vasquez crashed his vehicle, a woman driving a Volkswagen Beetle slammed into a box truck that was parked in the breakdown lane. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
A passenger who was in the car was rushed to the hospital and is in serious condition.
Vasquez is being held on $10,000 cash bail and is due back in court on April 25.
