Marie Conley is 59 years old and from Dorchester. She worked as a Boston Police Traffic Supervisor for eight years. On October 21, 2008 at about 8:48am, officers responded to a radio call for a motor vehicle accident and pedestrian struck at the intersection of Winter St and Parish St, in Dorchester. On arrival officers observed EMS on scene treating the victim, a Boston Police Traffic Supervisor. The ambulance rushed the victim to Boston Medical Center for further treatment. Boston Police detectives, in conjunction with the Accident Reconstruction Team, conducted an investigation into the facts and circumstances surrounding this incident. Information received from witnesses at the scene indicated that the victim was performing her duties and in full uniform with reflective vest. Witnesses stated the victim had signaled for all vehicular traffic to stop while she was about to cross a student. As the victim entered the middle of the crosswalk and stood in the middle of the intersection, she was struck by a motor vehicle. The operator of the motor vehicle had been cited with Negligent Operation of a Motor Vehicle and Failure to Yield to a Pedestrian and was pending an appearance before the clerk magistrate at Dorchester District Court. As a result of this tragic development, detectives in conjunction with the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office are now seeking a complaint against the driver for Motor Vehicle Homicide by Negligent Operation.
