Motor Vehicle Homicide Trial of Waltham Woman Starts Today

Blanca Contreras faces charges in the death of Scott Coxall.

The motor vehicle homicide trial of a Waltham woman is scheduled to begin today at Waltham District Court, according to the Middlesex County District Attorney's office.

Blanca Contreras, a native of Guatemala who is in the country illegally, is facing charges for motor vehicle homicide, leaving the scene causing personal injury in connection with the Nov. 23, 2011 crash that killed Scott Coxall, 39 of Waltham. 

Authorities believe Contreras was driving the car that struck Coxall but her boyfriend, William Vasquez, has told Waltham Police he was driving. Contreras has also said she was not the driver.

Police have charged Vasquez with witness intimidation because they believe he is lying about being the driver.

Deva you sound very racist, Along with cp
Deva June 13, 2013 at 08:19 PM
You are the problem with America "It's me". People like you are the first to scream racism the second someone brings up illegals, or economic terrorists as I believe they are. I'm sick of people like this getting a free ride in MY country, with MY taxes. How many more situations like this and the one in Milford involving Matthew Denise, a 17 year old child. Killed and dragged to death by a drunk illegal immigrant are going to occur before people like you and the weak politicians you vote into office start standing up for rightful citizens? People like you don't let your heart bleed for the rightful citizens that are murdered and stolen from by people like this. But you have all the sympathy for the criminals. People like you are why America is weak. Because you elect people that are weak. And if speaking the truth, the thing you're afraid of makes me racist; then I guess you're the smartest person in the world.

Ryan, you forgot one
Ryan Grannan-Doll (Editor) June 13, 2013 at 08:59 PM
I don't think I did. To which comment are you referring?

@It's me, While you may not like her comment, is does not rise the the level of violating the Patch terms of service.
its me June 13, 2013 at 09:14 PM
Oh I see. Her refering to Undocumted people as those people is ok.. cool
its me June 13, 2013 at 09:17 PM
Patch expects all of its users to be respectful of others. hmm

is threatening, harassing or that promotes racism, bigotry, hatred or physical harm of any kind against any group or individual;
SCOWE DAVIDC June 13, 2013 at 10:43 PM
To me its more of an opinion and the Diva is entitled to one. The only thing I disagree with is the deported part of the comment. They are here illegally (?), and they killed someone born and raised here. If you send them home, they're going to get away with murder. I'd rather know that my taxes are paying to keep them in jail for life. I wouldnt doubt that if there was a way for us to close our doors for just one year and didnt let anybody in, legal or not, you would see a major difference in our economy.

She seems Uneducated to me....
its me June 13, 2013 at 10:47 PM
Ryan must of went to bed
Ryan Grannan-Doll (Editor) June 13, 2013 at 11:13 PM
@It's me, Please stay on topic, as David C has.
its me June 13, 2013 at 11:15 PM
Ryan I feel you pick and choose what to delete .. I might have to look into this further
Nick Low June 14, 2013 at 04:55 AM
Yeah, our economy would collapse if all illegals suddenly disappeared.
Deva June 14, 2013 at 05:31 PM
No, he didn't. I stayed within the posting guidelines (like I always do) which is why he didn't delete my totally valid post.
Deva June 14, 2013 at 05:32 PM
You're just upset he didn't delete my comment. Grow up.
Deva June 14, 2013 at 05:34 PM
I will debate you anytime, anywhere. You have no idea whom you're dealing with. And no capitol letter on "uneducated" Rhoads Scholar.
Deva June 14, 2013 at 05:38 PM
Well said frosty. And I am a "he" by the way. There is a big difference between a "Diva" and a "Deva".
Deva June 14, 2013 at 05:51 PM
Um, because when someone say's "those people" it doesn't automatically mean they're being racist. I can't believe I have to waste time pointing this out. But then again, this is the land of America where we have to spare everyone's feelings.
its me June 14, 2013 at 08:17 PM
Deva what is Capitol letter?
its me June 14, 2013 at 08:17 PM
did you mean capital? numb nut
Nick Low June 14, 2013 at 08:17 PM
This must be an act, right? Because it's "capitAl" letter and "Rhodes" scholar. Now back to your illiterate bantering...
