NextImg:Massachusetts State Police: 1 motorcyclist killed, another injured by suspected drunk driver

A New Bedford man is facing a charge of vehicular homicide after police allege he was driving drunk southbound on Route 24 when he struck two motorcyclists in Taunton, killing one and critically injuring another.

Fred Moreira, 35, is scheduled to be arraigned at Taunton District Court on the vehicular homicide charge as well as charges of operating under the influence of liquor and negligent operation of a motor vehicle.

State troopers responded to the scene at around 2:30 a.m. Saturday for the crash between Moreira’s 2014 Lexus sedan and two motorcyclists. There, they arrested Moreira on suspicion of drunk driving.

Tyler Moniz, 30, of Fall River, was driving a 2007 Yamaha R1 when police say he was struck, thrown from his bike and straight into the nearby tree line, killing him.

The second motorcyclist is a 39-year-old Fall River man driving a 2001 Yamaha V-Star 1100. He suffered life-threatening injuries and was transported to a Rhode Island hospital.
