WILMINGTON, MA — On Thursday, December 5, 2019 at 9:10am, Massachusetts State Troopers responded to 911 calls of a road rage incident on Route 93 Southbound, near Exit 41, in Wilmington.
According to police, an operator of a cement truck intentionally discharged a portion of its cement load onto another vehicle, completely covering and disabling it.
While fleeing the scene, the cement truck allegedly struck the arm of the operator as they attempted to flag its driver down. Officers observed significant swelling in the operator’s arm.
The cement truck then reportedly left several lanes of the roadway covered in fresh wet cement. MassDOT responded to quickly clean the scene prior to it drying.
Other state troopers in the area were able to locate the cement truck and discovered it had struck a second vehicle and again fled.
The operator of the cement truck — Michael Boucher, 47, of North Reading — was shortly thereafter placed under arrest and charged with:
1. A&B with Dangerous Weapon;
2. A&B with Dangerous Weapon;
3. Disorderly Conduct;
4. Negligent Operation of a Motor Vehicle;
5. Leaving the Scene of a Property Damage Crash;
6. Malicious Destruction of Property over $250;
7. Malicious Destruction of Property over $250; and
8. Marked Lanes Violation.
Boucher was arraigned on Friday morning and held on $15,000 bail.
