Man Indicted In Connection With Fatal Crash At Sweet Tomatoes Restaurant In Newton

A Middlesex County grand jury has indicted a Newton man in connection with a car crash that killed two and injured seven at a restaurant in March.

Bradford Casler, 55, was charged with two counts of motor vehicle homicide and one count of operating a vehicle to endanger, Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan announced Wednesday.

Officials said Casler's Volkswagen SUV was traveling down Chestnut Street just after 6 p.m. on March 1, when it crossed over Washington Street and crashed into the front of Sweet Tomatoes Pizza.

As WBUR reported earlier, Gregory Morin, 32, of Newton, and Eleanor Miele, 57, of Watertown, were killed in the crash.

Casler was also injured. After the crash, his license was revoked.

No date has yet been set for Casler's arraignment.
