Charge of Leaving the Scene Dropped in Fatal Adams Incident
Staff Reports,
08:54PM / Monday, June 18, 2018

ADAMS, Mass. — A charge of leaving the scene of fatal accident lodged against a local businessman has been dropped.
 
Instead, David I. Sookey Jr. had not-guilty pleas entered on his behalf on Monday in Berkshire Superior Court in Pittsfield for a single count of misleading, impeding and obstructing a police investigation.
 
Sookey, 61, allegedly ran over 85-year-old Theresa Marby on Feb. 16 when he exited his parking spot next to the Oasis Liquor Store on Dean Street. He told police at the time that he did not see Marby and thought he'd hit a pothole before leaving the area. Police allege that he provided misleading information related to his knowledge about the events of that day.
 
The single count of leaving the scene of a personal injury accident, death resulting, which he was arraigned on in February, will be dismissed in Northern Berkshire District Court in the near future, according to the district attorney's office. 
 
Sookey appeared before Judge Mark Mason on Monday and was released on $10,000 bail.
