WESTFIELD–Police have identified the victim that died in the motor vehicle crash last night, as well as circumstances surrounding the crash.
David Matyseck, 68, of Westfield, died following a motor vehicle collision at East Main Street and Delmont Street, around 7:30 p.m. yesterday.
Westfield Police Capt. Michael McCabe said that the accident is currently under investigation, but “it appeared as if another vehicle went through a red light and broadsided Mr. Matyseck.”
McCabe reported that the driver of the other vehicle, Ryan Pasquini-Pezzeni, 25, of Westfield, was initially arrested on charges related to operating under the influence.
McCabe said that shortly before the accident that killed Matyseck, Pasquini-Pezzeni’s vehicle was suspected in another accident at Main and Meadow Street. Police were searching for his vehicle when the second fatal collision occurred.
McCabe said that this charge and others are still pending and will be determined by the Hampden County District Attorney’s office.
