Man Accused Of Driving On Drugs, Crashing Into Pregnant Woman's Car

Prosecutors say a Massachusetts man has been indicted on accusations he was on drugs when he collided head-on into another vehicle, injuring a pregnant woman so badly that she lost her unborn baby.

The Boston Globe reports Plymouth prosecutors say the 24-year-old Carver man was indicted Wednesday on charges of operating under the influence of drugs, among others.

Prosecutors say Christopher Reagan drove a Toyota Scion into a 2005 Chevrolet Impala on the evening of Feb. 1, sending the sedan into a snowbank and trapping the woman inside. She suffered a traumatic brain injury and multiple fractures.

Police say they found a syringe, a spoon and a piece of paper containing "a white powdery substance." The man later tested positive for opiates.

An arraignment date has not yet been set.
