WHDH: A Norwood man facing charges in connection with a Somerville hit-and-run crash that claimed the life of a longtime Watertown Public Schools administrator last week told police that he knew he hit someone but was too afraid to stop or come forward, prosecutors said. Edward Clark, 55, appeared in Somerville District Court Friday following his Thursday arrest in connection with the Feb. 8 crash on Powder House Boulevard that killed 40-year-old Allison Donovan, of Somerville. Clark was released on bail under certain conditions with his next court appearance scheduled for March 15. Officers responding to a reported hit-and-run about 7:15 p.m. on Feb. 8 found Donovan and another woman injured in the street. Donovan was later pronounced dead at an area hospital. The second woman sustained non-life-threatening injuries. A preliminary investigation suggests Clark was operating a 2003 black Ford F-150 and traveling east on Powder House Boulevard when he struck both women in a crosswalk before fleeing the scene, officials said.
Too scared to stop?? The only reason you’d be too scared to stop is if you were drunk. Hitting a stranger with my car is one of my worst nightmares. But if you hit someone and you’re completely sober, then why wouldn’t you stop? If it’s truly an accident, like there was a glare in your eyes or something, then you’re probably not going to jail.
Unless you run. Then you’re just a piece of shit. And not only did he have no problem going out to dinner that night, he’s been posting on Facebook all week. I took these screenshots last night.
A year to remember? Bro, you just killed a woman a few days ago. Da fuq are you doing Facebook? Ya know isn’t going to have a year to remember? The woman you killed. The year’s gonna suck for her family, but as long you don’t miss your dinner reservation, who cares, right?
And what was he doing in Somerville if he lives in Norwood? Well he’s apparently some sort of contractor who recently got a job in Cambridge.
I’m sorry, I don’t care how good that job is or how much it pays. If I killed someone and I knew the cops were looking for my truck, that would be the end of that job. He might’ve actually been able to get away with this since there’s no license plate to trace him. He could’ve just stayed in Norwood and found work somewhere else. That’s where his company is located according to their Facebook page. But this greedy mother fucker started driving around Somerville with front end damage still on his truck and thought no one would notice. Like it hasn’t been all over the news. Like the tragic unsolved killing of a teacher was something that people would quickly forget about.
Looks like he had to get home to his boo.
That’s not his daughter – it’s his girlfriend.
Nothing creepy about that. She even taught him how to duckface.
I’m sure she’ll wait around for it while he’s locked up. She’s obviously really upset about this since she updated her profile picture after he got arrested.
It really all could’ve been avoided too if he’d just stopped. Sure, the family would hate you and it would be really hard to face them, but at least you wouldn’t be looking at time in the slammer. If he was drunk I guess that at least makes sense, but from the looks of it it appears like he just didn’t wanna miss his dinner reservation with his trophy Brazilian girlfriend.
