Howard is quoted in this Boston Globe article: Missed warning signs on the road to tragedy. The article describes how a Massachusetts State Police officer let an impaired woman continue driving, and 19 minutes later she struck and killed a 42-year old husband and father. The officers who responded to the crash said the driver couldn’t walk without losing her balance, had “droopy” eyes, and didn’t know what month it was.  Howard was critical of the actions of the State Police in refusing to provide police reports to the District Attorney’s office because the State Police began an internal investigation.

A second article published today describes how the State Police took eight months to hand over information about the crash to prosecutors: Months after fatal crash, State Police provide information to prosecutors.
