    95.9 WATD: Plymouth: Kingston state trooper pleads not guilty to charges in fatal crash, details emerge (Oct 10 2013)

    John Basler of Kingston was released on personal recognizance at his arraignment Thursday in Plymouth District Court. Plymouth police say the 25-year-old Basler had a blood-alcohol level more than twice the legal limit to drive when he was involved in the crash in the early morning hours of Sept. 22. The other driver, 64-your-year-old Susan Macchi, and her daughter, 23-year-old Juliet Macchi, died returning home from a Red Sox game.


    The 25-year-old Basler was off duty and was coming from a party. The incident report says it was at a house-warming party at the home of a Carver Police dispatcher, cranberry road. The incident report also said a number of guests reportedly work for various police departments. Witnesses could not agree on how many “Bud Lite” beers Basler drank, but that he did participate in a drinking game.


    He was also injured and used a cane in court today.

    CBS Local Boston: Source: State Trooper Involved In Deadly Crash Was 3 Times Legal OUI Limit (Sept 28 2013)

    Plymouth police say Trooper John J. Basler, 25, of Kingston was off-duty and was driving drunk when a car driven by Susan Macchi, 64, of Carver collided head-on with his vehicle. Investigators have said it appeared Macchi’s car crossed the center line before the crash. However, they are looking into Basler’s role in the collision. Macchi and her daughter, Juliet Macchi, 23, were both killed. Basler suffered non-life threatening injuries in the crash.


    A source told WBZ NewsRadio 1030 that Basler’s blood alcohol level was .26, which is more than three times the legal limit for driving. In addition to the OUI and driving to endanger charges, he also faces a charge of carrying a firearm while under the influence of liquor, according to the Plymouth Police Department, which is investigating the crash with the assistance of the Massachusetts State Police Accident Reconstruction Unit.
