The state police rejected a request from Mayor Art Ward to probe the handling of a controversial Riverside Drive crash where former Officer Robert Mosback struck a pole in a high-speed, late-night, on-duty wreck that totalled a cruiser and sent him to a hospital.
The state police said severe budget cuts have left them with too few supervisors to be able to spare a lieutenant to spearhead an investigation in Bristol, according to Edward Krawiecki, Jr, the city attorney.
Mayor Art Ward wrote a letter Tuesday to the state’s attorney’s office asking that it carry out the probe instead, according to several sources.
