Hanson Woman Faces Motor Vehicle Homicide Charge In Pedestrian Death

HANSON, Mass. (CBS) — A local woman is facing several charges after she allegedly struck and killed a 19-year-old pedestrian early Tuesday morning, law enforcement officials said in a prepared statement.

At 12:20 a.m., Aron Langlais, 19, of Hanson, was walking on the shoulder of Main Street when a vehicle driven by Sara Sansone, 21, of Hanson, struck him from behind, according to Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy J. Cruz and Police Chief Arthur Parker.

After striking Langlais in front of 685 Main St., Sansone’s vehicle hit a tree.

Sansone “drifted onto the shoulder and struck Langlais without (braking),” Cruz and Parker said in their prepared statement.

Langlais was taken to Brockton Hospital then transferred to Beth Israel Hospital in Boston, where he was declared dead.

Sansone was taken to a local hospital, where she was treated and released.

The Hanson woman faces several charges, including motor vehicle homicide and OUI narcotics causing serious bodily injury. Sansone was scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday in Plymouth District Court.
