WHITE RIVER JUNCTION – New details were revealed this week in paperwork filed at the courthouse in White River Junction surrounding the death of Dr. Hasse Halley, the pedestrian who was struck and killed October 1st on Woodstock Village’s Rec Center Bridge.
The affidavit summarizing the Woodstock Police Department’s investigation, which resulted in a single misdemeanor charge of careless or negligent operation of a motor vehicle being filed against 72-year-old Richmond Maxham of Bridgewater Corners, revealed a painstaking review of a dozen seemingly minor circumstances surrounding the collision between a school teacher crossing Route 4 and the cargo pickup truck that hit her.
Maxham made his way to the defense table on Tuesday morning in White River where he stood silently as his defense attorney, Wayne Young, entered an innocent plea on Maxham’s behalf before Maxham was released on personal recognizance conditions pending an eventual trial.
