The Pembroke, Mass. woman arrested last week on the suspicion that she was responsible for a hit-and-run that left an 80-year-old woman dead pled not guilty at her arraignment in Cambridge District Court on Friday morning.
An 80-year old woman died this afternoon after being struck by a vehicle in an apparent hit-and-run in a parking lot, spurring the Cambridge Police Department to spend hours seeking the driver responsible.
On a chilly March afternoon, weeks before the incident, FM met Cambridge Police Department Superintendent Christine A. Elow in her office. The space is just like any other career professional’s: kids’ drawings pasted on the walls, plaques and awards arranged tidily along the shelves. She’s the second highest ranking officer in the department and the first woman to ever hold her position. And she’s a local. She grew up in Cambridge, attended Cambridge public schools, and, after serving four years with the U.S. Navy, ended up back in her hometown with the CPD.
