QUINCY (CBS) — The man accused of killing 62-year-old Irina Hyde in a hit and run accident last week was held on $10,000 bail after an emotional arraignment Monday.
Ryan Brady, 34, is charged with leaving the scene of the accident that killed Hyde on Dec. 15 in Braintree. Brady pleaded not guilty to the charges against him.
Prosecutors allege Brady hit Hyde with his Mazda at about 5 p.m. on Dec. 15 at the intersection of Shaw and Commercial Streets in Braintree while her husband, Tony Hyde, stood just yards away. Hyde was taken to the hospital, but she died the next morning.
Brady told police he did not know he’d hit someone. He said he heard a knocking on his car and stopped, but didn’t see anything so he drove away to buy Chinese food.
He was in tears as prosecutors recounted the details of the case Monday.
After the arraignment, Tony Hyde yelled out “murderer” in the court room. Hyde’s daughter collapsed after being overcome with emotion, and was taken by medics from the court room on a stretcher.
“You want to see the anguish, look at my family, my daughter-in-law. My family’s suffering goes on and on,” Tony Hyde said outside the court house. “He may get out in, who knows, two years, two and a half years and resume his life. My wife is gone.”
Brady’s license was immediately suspended for the fatal accident investigation, per state law.
His Massachusetts driving record obtained by WBZ shows a problematic past. Since 2002, Brady has four accidents, four speeding tickets and a DWI on his record. He has also had his license suspended twice in that time period, most recently from 2010 to 2015.
Brady also faced criminal charges last year in Braintree for resisting arrest and assaulting a police officer.
According to the police report, officers responded to Brady’s apartment because he was drunk and had locked his girlfriend out. The report said Brady became belligerent and had to be pepper-sprayed. During the altercation, he bit an officer’s arm.
Brady later admitted to sufficient facts in the case and spent a year on probation. He was ordered to attend three AA classes per week and write an apology letter to the officer he injured.
Prosecutors asked the judge hold Brady on $25,000 bail, but the judge set his bail at $10,000.
