News brief: UMass student killed in hit-and-run accident

At 10:26 p.m. Saturday,  former University of Massachusetts student Blake Goodman was struck and killed by an as-yet undetermined vehicle while bicycling on Montague Road in North Amherst.

The 21-year-old Goodman and 24-year-old John Deary were riding their bicycles near 115 Montague Road when they were struck by a dark colored sedan, which fled the scene. Both were taken by ambulance to Cooley Dickinson Hospital in Northampton, where Goodman was pronounced dead. Deary was treated for a leg injury and then released.

The vehicle involved in the accident is still at large. According to an Amherst Police press release, witnesses at the scene described it as a dark colored sedan, which may have been a Ford based on evidence gathered at the scene.

The vehicle would have sustained heavy damage to its front passenger side door and mirror.

Amherst Police are working with the Massachusetts State Police Accident Scene Reconstruction Team and investigators from the Northwestern District Attorney’s office. Anyone who may have witnessed the accident or who has any information on the case is urged to contact the Amherst Police Department at (413) 259-3000.
