Bail lowered for defendant charged with Framingham OUI accident that killed MassDOT worker

Over the objection of prosecutors, bail was lowered for a 29-year-old Marine accused of causing a Framingham drunk driving crash that claimed the life of a MassDOT worker last year, the Metrowest Daily News reported. Jeremy Gardner, of Bridgton, faces a charge of motor vehicle homicide. Under Massachusetts law (Chapter 90 Sec. 24G) motor vehicle homicide is punishable by up to 15 years behind bars. A Framingham OUI defense lawyer must thoroughly defend a client against both the allegation that he was driving drunk and the accusation that he caused the accident. In order to prove motor vehicle homicide, prosecutors must prove that a defendant was driving recklessly or negligently and under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The judge in this case reduced Gardner's bail to $25,000 — prosecutors had requested that it remain at $100,000. He is accused of hitting and killing Gregory Vilidnitsky, 57, of Framingham, with his pickup. The victim was working as part of a night paving crew on Route 9 near the commuter lot and Crossing Boulevard. Authorities accuse him of continuing after striking the victim, before slamming into a tanker truck parked in the work zone. They also say he tried to run away but was stopped by highway workers. If released, he will be on house arrest and must wear a monitoring bracelet. He will also be subjected to random drug and alcohol testing. In addition to motor vehicle homicide he is charged with leaving the scene of an accident causing death, leaving the scene of an accident causing property damage and driving under the influence of alcohol. He contends a passenger was driving at the time of the accident.
