Police have arrested an alleged tractor-trailer driver who hit a Massachusetts State Police Lieutenant on Route 495 north in Hopkinton on Wednesday.
After a lengthy investigation, MSP Troopers, in conjunction with Connecticut State Police and New Haven, Connecticut Police, developed probable cause that Perry Livingston, a 40-year-old male from New Haven, was the operator of the tractor-trailer.
According to Dave Procopio of Massachusetts State Police, investigators obtained an arrest warrant for Livingston and arrested him today at his residence in New Haven.
Connecticut State Police located the tractor trailer that Livingston was operating in Milford, Connecticut and it was unoccupied. The tractor-trailer was seized pending a search warrant.
Arrangements to send Livingston to Massachusetts to face charges will be made by the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office and Connecticut authorities.
The investigation was a cooperative effort between several Massachusetts State Police units (Troop C, Middlesex County State Police Detective Unit, Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Section, and Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section), Connecticut State Police, and New Haven Police.
