Lengthy Driving Record For Driver In Deadly Accident

SPRINGFIELD, Mass (WGGB) –Ale Moultrie is 60 years old. He’s been driving for about three decades, so the fact that his driving history includes a few violations isn’t surprising. The question is if any of his citations could indicate if he’s a dangerous when he’s behind the wheel.
Five pages of incidents give an inside look into Ale Moultrie’s 28 years on the road. Dating back to 1985, Moultrie was found at fault in three car accidents, issued seven speeding tickets, and was cited six times for improper equipment or inspection sticker issues. That doesn’t include the 2012 deadly pedestrian accident in West Springfield.

“I spent 25 years in law enforcement,” Attorney Charles Dolan, Moultire’s legal counsel, said. “I’ve seen far far worse. I don’t take it to be anything except for what it is.”

Dolan says no prior incidents shed light on this week’s accident.

“There can be many reasons for the entry and many circumstances surrounding any kind of entry on a driver’s history. That doesn’t necessarily mean anything,” Dolan said.

Moultrie was found not responsible for the 2012 deadly accident. Springfield Police say anytime there is a serious accident, it’s part of the investigatory protocol to pull someone’s driving record. Detectives are still investigating Tuesday’s crash, but for public safety reasons, worked with the registry of motor vehicles to suspend Moultrie’s license pending the outcome of their investigation.

“There has to be some basis for that suspension,” Dolan said. “You just can’t suspend it because somebody is in an accident.”

Police have confirmed that moultrie was not under the influence tuesday. Dolan says he’s a hard working man who twice may have been in the wrong place, at the wrong time.

“It’s a tragedy, and unfortunately someone lost their life,” Dolan said. “That can never be changed. He is very devastated by the incident.”

Dolan recommended that Moultrie seek some sort of counseling to help him deal with two incredibly traumatic experiences. Witnesses of Tuesday’s accident are cooperating with police. Their reports could play a major role in the investigation, because police say there were no surveillance cameras in the area that captured the accident.

    This guy is a jerk. If it was his father or family that got hit, he would not say that.

    He didn’t seem to mention that his brother is a cop with prior curruption charges, and how Alecalled his neither right after killing that woman a year ago instead of calling police. His brother got that homicide swept under the rug just like he’ll get this one swept under the rug. This man took a mother and wife from a Family and now a 53yr old man. When is somebody going to expose this corruption before he kills again? Please save a life and stop Ale Moultrie and his brother from killing people!

    He’s a killer! His cop brother and his lawyer are accomplices to his crimes for obstructing real justice!
