According to the Essex County District Attorney’s Office, Ray had gone to the Andover Massachusetts State Police barracks with her mother to file a motor vehicle crash report that involved her husband earlier in the day. As she left the State Police station and headed towards her car, she was struck by a pickup truck. Her mother, not realizing what had happened, ran inside the police station to report that accident. Only when State Police officers responded outside did she discover that it was her daughter that had been struck.
Cynthia Anne Ray was taken to Lawrence General Hospital where she later succumbed to her injuries.
Meanwhile, Robert Bryant allegedly tried to leave the scene, but was stopped by Massachusetts State Police. Officers who stopped him believe that he was under the influence of alcohol.
