Suspect in Sagamore Bridge Hit-and-Run Apprehended; Victims were Off-Duty MSP Officer and Spouse

At approximately 8:10 p.m. yesterday Massachusetts State Troopers responded to a head-on hit-and-run crash on the Sagamore Bridge, Route 6 east, in Bourne. The investigation indicated that a 1999 Toyota coupe crossed the center line and struck a 2017 Volkswagen Passat heading in the opposite direction and occupied by an off-duty Massachusetts State Police officer and his wife. The operator of the Toyota then fled the scene by exiting his own vehicle and jumping into the back of a passing landscaping truck.

The female victim, the passenger in the Passat, was transported to Beth Israel Hospital in Plymouth for minor injuries. She was treated and later released.

As a result of a subsequent investigation, we identified the operator of the Toyota as GREGORY B. MAY, 35, of Duxbury. At 10:35 a.m. today, Troopers from State Police-Bourne and the State Police Violent Fugitive Apprehension Section located MAY at a relative’s home in Bourne and placed him under arrest. He was brought to the Bourne barracks and booked and will be arraigned this afternoon in Falmouth District Court for charges related to causing the crash and leaving the scene.
