Masslive: The 30-year-old Westminster man cited for speeding five minutes before a fatal crash in Auburn last week has been charged with motor vehicle homicide, according to Auburn Police Chief Andrew Sluckis Jr. Dennis Maccarone was issued a citation on the motor vehicle homicide charge Monday afternoon, according to the police chief. He will be arraigned in Worcester District Court at a later date, Sluckis said. Authorities said Maccarone was driving a pickup truck that crashed head-on into a Subaru driven by 34-year-old Keith Arsenault on Route 20 in Auburn Thursday.
Arsenault, who lived in Douglas and Woonsocket, Rhode Island, died Sunday from his injuries at UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester. Maccarone was cited for speeding on Route 20 just five minutes before the crash. He was driving 70 mph in a 40 mph zone about two miles from the crash, the chief said. According to records from the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles, Maccarone has been cited a handful of times for speeding in the past. Maccarone was cited for a marked lanes violation and driving negligently as to endanger immediately after the crash.
A preliminary investigation shows Maccarone was driving eastbound on Route 20 in Auburn when he crossed into the westbound lane. He struck the Subaru driven by Arsenault head-on, police said. Arsenault tried to swerve but was unable to avoid the truck. Auburn police asked the state RMV to suspend Maccarone’s license. His license was suspended on Friday.
RMV records show Maccarone was cited for speeding in Lancaster in 2006. He was cited for speeding in a special regulation zone in Westminster in 2007. A few years later, in June 2010, Maccarone was cited again for speeding in a special regulation zone in Westminster. Another speeding citation was issued to Maccarone in Princeton in October 2010. RMV records show another citation for speeding in a special regulation zone in Westminster in November 2016. He was also cited for speeding in Auburn before the fatal crash.
Maccarone’s driving history shows several citations for equipment violations, driving without an inspection sticker, accidents and seat belt violations. Records also show Maccarone has his license suspended multiple times for payment defaults and other issues. He had to take driver safety courses twice, records show.

Name an institution more useless and corrupt than the RMV. You can’t. This is the same institution that got 7 bikers killed in New Hampshire last June because they were too unorganized and lazy to suspend the license of truck driver Boris Clitoris. That hack Stephanie Pollack kept her job as Secretary of Transportation despite that because that’s what happens when you’re Charlie Baker’s buddy. Her haircut alone should be disqualifying.
This asshole was destined to kill someone. He had 18 violations total!! He made that perfectly clear with his driving record, yet he got to keep his license.
About seven years ago I had to go to a class for driving rejects in Leominster because I had three moving violations in a two year period. One of them was 65 in a 55, and the others were an inspection sticker and a tail light. I’m not exactly a menace behind the wheel, but I went with all the rejects and heard their stories and I really wish Turtleboy was around back then because there were some CHARACTERS in that room. Basically assholes like this.
Well guess what? That class doesn’t work. I spent eight hours there listening to assholes trade war stories, and I’m pretty sure nobody learned a Goddamn thing. Driving is a privilege, not a right, and this asshole never should’ve been allowed to drive in the first place.
