REVERE, MASS. (WHDH) - A driver who hit and injured a teen trick-or-treater in Revere on Halloween was arraigned Friday after officers determined he was driving with a suspended license, officials said.
Wilvins Rosirus, 32, of Lynn, appeared in Chelsea District Court to face charges of operating a motor vehicle with a suspended license and speeding, according to the Suffolk District Attorney’s Office.
A judge set Rosirus’ bail at $250 and ordered him not to drive without a valid license.
Rosirus allegedly struck the 14-year-old girl while she and her friends were trying to cross American Legion Highway around 8:15 p.m.
A preliminary investigation suggests that the light at the intersection was green when the teen was hit.
Rosirus stopped and called 911 to report that he thought he may have killed someone, according to prosecutors.
Emergency crews responding to the scene transported the victim to Massachusetts General Hospital, where the DA’s office says she is in stable condition.
Ayo Beno, the victim’s friend who witnessed the crash, says the incident left her shaken up.
“I never thought something like this would happen to someone so close, so I just want to say please, please, please be careful when you’re crossing the street,” she said.
Rania Benourdia, whose sister saw the victim get hit, added that the intersection the group was trying to cross is dangerous.
“Some people speed up. They don’t stop. It’s just really bad,” she said.
Police say Rosirus is cooperating with investigators.
The incident remains under investigation.
