LUDLOW, Mass. (AP) — Massachusetts police say a 60-year-old man has been using his dead father’s identity to drive.

Ludlow police tell that Bruce Dias of Ludlow had own license revoked 27-years ago after being convicted on a motor vehicle homicide charge involving the death of a young child.

Police say Officer Derek Smolinski stopped Dias driving a 1993 Mercedes 300 on Saturday. Police say the officer recognized Dias and knew he had no license.
