Parents of student killed in crash file $1.5 million lawsuit

Evagelos V. Pashos


The family of a Shrewsbury man killed when he was struck by a car driven by an alleged drunk driver has filed a $1.5 million wrongful death lawsuit against the woman.

Vasilios and Garifalia “Lisa” Pashos filed the suit in Worcester Superior Court in October against Alison J. Voorhis of Hopkinton. The 47-year-old woman is facing motor vehicle homicide, drunk driving and other charges for the Sept. 24 head-on collision in Northborough that killed Evagelos V. Pashos, a 21-year-old Northeastern University senior and graduate of St. John’s High School in Shrewsbury.

Voorhis’ last appearance in Westborough District Court was Tuesday for a pre-trial conference, but she failed to appear because she was in a "treatment program," her Ashland attorney Angelo Catanzaro said. He would not elaborate further.

A warrant was issued for Voorhis arrest, but Catanzaro said she was given until Monday morning to appear in court before the warrant would be served.
