In February, the DA’s office told reporters that one driver had stopped for police, and that investigators were looking at more than one driver in the case. The DA’s office at the time called the crash “a complicated set of circumstances.”
Talia’s devastated father, Craig Newfield, told WBZ-TV in February that the girls’ families were looking answers.
“We don’t understand what happened. We don’t understand how two beautiful young women can get taken from us in the space of about 20 feet,” he said.MORE NEWS: Arrest Made After 80-Year-Old Shrewsbury Woman Injured In Hit & Run
