May 2, 2013 – Gregory Poole, 55, of East Bridgewater, Massachusetts, sustained serious personal injuries when he was struck by an SUV. The accident occurred on Wednesday at approximately 1:00p.m. while Poole was standing outside of the home he rents. The driver, his sister, Cynthia Gerrior, 53, of Whitman, had been parked in Poole’s driveway when she placed the vehicle in reverse, and caused it to strike Poole, and continue into the house through the front door.
According to the East Bridgewater Fire Department, Poole was airlifted by MedFlight helicopter to Tufts Medical Center in Boston with multiple internal injuries. He was listed in good condition on Thursday. Gerrior was taken from the scene in an ambulance, but was uninjured.
The house sustained extensive property damage, including a 10’x10′ hole where the front door used to be. There are broken windows, hanging insulation, and lose wires and plugs.
The East Bridgewater Police Department responded to the scene, and do not believe Gerrior will be charged with criminal negligence.
