MIDDLEBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Records show a wrong-way driver who authorities say caused a crash that killed her and four college students in Massachusetts had been cited for speeding five times.
The Enterprise (http://bit.ly/2eLa3Xj ) reports that 31-year-old Valantein Burson’s driving record shows she was cited for speeding in Warren, Sturbridge, Stoughton, Canton and Westport. Her last speeding citation was issued in October 2015.
