Christopher Maxson, 19, of Marblehead, was arrested last night after he collided with a car on Eastern Avenue in Lynn and then struck several parked cars before rolling over. As a result of the crash, Julia Gauthier, 19, of Salem, was ejected from the sunroof and died from her injuries.
The Lynn Police Department responded to reports of a motor vehicle crash with injuries at Eastern Avenue and Glenwood Street in Lynn, near the Swampscott line, at 1:00 a.m. Besides, Maxson and Gauthier, there were two other passengers in the vehicle.
After his arraignment, Christopher Maxson was reportedly held on $12,000 cash bail.

Even for simple DUI/OUI cases where there was no accident, property damage or injuries, Drunk Driving Penalties can be severely devastating and life-altering.
