A Brockton woman was charged this afternoon with motor vehicle homicide after police said she was talking on a cell phone when she drove into a telephone pole Thursday in Kingston, killing her pregnant passenger and her unborn baby.
When police arrived at the crash at Main Street, Nusquine M. Cartus, 30, was walking around her 1996 Nissan Maxima with blood on her hand, said Sergeant Zachary Potrykus of the Kingston Police Department. The telephone pole had snapped in half and fallen on the passenger’s side of the car, trapping 29-year-old Nadine Solide inside. The women were returning from Logan International Airport when Cartus crashed at 5:30 a.m., police said.
Solide, who was not wearing a seat belt, was rushed to Jordan Hospital in Plymouth, where she and her unborn child were pronounced dead, Potrykus said. Cartus was also treated for minor injuries.
Cartus was arraigned this afternoon in Plymouth District Court on charges that included two counts of motor vehicle homicide by negligent operation, operating to endanger, speeding, a marked lane violation, and impeded operation by talking on a cell phone.
