Former Fall River resident dies in pedestrian crash, driver charged



BOSTON, An accused drunk driver has been arraigned in connection with a Downtown Boston crash that left a pedestrian initially critically injured, District Attorney Kevin Hayden said.

Abana Cabrera, 36, who is charged under the name Roberto Rodriguez Cabrera, was arraigned in the Central Division of the Boston Municipal Court on charges of operating under the influence of alcohol causing serious bodily injury, OUI alcohol as a second offense, and failure to stop or yield. Assistant District Attorney John Mooney requested a bail of $10,000 and that Cabrera submit to home confinement subject to GPS monitor, refrain from driving, remain alcohol free subject to screenings, and surrender all passports in the event she is to be released on bail. Bail was set at $7,500 and Cabrera was ordered to submit to GPS monitoring, refrain from driving and consuming alcohol, and to surrender any passports.

Cabrera was previously convicted of driving under the influence in Nevada in 2016.

At approximately 12:52 a.m. Monday, Cabrera was operating a Hyundai Elantra in the area of 75 Kneeland Street when she struck Attleboro resident Richard Mullins, formerly of Fall River, as he crossed the street. First responders transported the victim to Tufts Medical Center where he later died. The defendant allegedly made statements to Boston Police detectives that she had been drinking since 4 p.m. the prior afternoon. Detectives noted an odor of alcohol from the defendant during the interview.
