Bourne firefighters use the Jaws of Life to cut away the roof of the vehicle in which Hopkinton, Town Manager Anthony Troiano is trapped. It took firefighters nearly 45 minutes to extricate Troiano from the mangled car.

A hearing to determine whether Hopkinton Town Manager Anthony Troiano will be charged in a fatal automobile accident has been continued for a second time.
Troiano sustained serious injuries in the May 15 crash on Sandwich Road in Bourne that resulted in the death of Lilija Berents, 69, of East Falmouth. A hearing was originally scheduled for Aug. 20, when Troiano would have appeared before a clerk magistrate to face possible charges including motor vehicle homicide by negligent operation, speeding, and failure to pass safely.
That hearing was continued until Sept. 24 to allow Troiano more time to recover from his injuries. This week, a judge continued the hearing again, until Nov. 5, saying that attorneys needed more time to gather medical records.
Troiano returned to full-time duty as town manager on Sept. 17.
