Arrest in Boston hit-and-run pedestrian accident at Public Garden

A 58-year-old Boston man is being arraigned today on charges he stole a pick-up truck and crashed it next to the Public Garden seriously injuring a woman who was walking near the scene Thursday afternoon, police announced.

Police said they arrested Keith Andrade once they spotted him Thursday night hours after the afternoon crash in the area of Washington Street and School Street. The victim remains in critical condition with life-threatening injuries, police said today.

Andrade is facing charges of larceny of a motor vehicle, operating a motor vehicle without a license, assault and battery by means of a dangerous weapon, reckless operation of a motor vehicle and leaving the scene of a motor vehicle accident resulting in personal injury.

Andrade also had two active warrants out of Boston District Court for larceny from a person.

As the Herald reported Thursday, a woman walking around the Public Garden suffered life-threatening injuries in a car crash where the driver who took off running from the stolen pickup truck that hit her.

Police said the call came in at 4:22 p.m. for reports of a person struck at the corner of Boylston and Charles streets. The woman who was hit suffered life-threatening injuries, police said, and authorities were making “full notifications,” which is done when someone either has died or might die.

Witness Antonio Avanti was waiting for the light on Boylston when he heard the crash and then saw smoke. He told the Herald he jumped out of his car and saw what appeared to be a young woman lying on the ground with people tending to her.

“She had an angel — there was somebody with blue scrubs who was helping her,” Avanti said.

Despite suffering third-degree burns on his head, arm, foot and back, the boy was in remarkably good spirits Thursday.

“That’s him, that’s his personality, he is by far the happiest baby ever,” said Sheila Chase, Easton’s grandmother.

“We’re hoping that the surgery goes well and we can finally get on the good road to recovery,” said Andrew Rosen, Easton’s father.

The family was cooking funnel cakes when the oil exploded onto Easton.

Andrew grabbed the flaming pan and tossed it out the door, but not before his arm was burned as well.

“I’m thankful he didn’t get any in his eye or we’d be dealing with a whole different situation right now,” he said.

Easton visited with his family Thursday through a window at the hospital, just hours before he was due to undergo surgery.

“To see him today now, it makes me see good, look at him, look at him blowing kisses,” said Vivian Rosen, Easton’s grandmother.

“Going through everything that he’s been through, so far to have him be smiling and waving, it’s nice to see him like that,” Andrew said.

Doctors are confident they can prevent major scaring and his hair will grow back. His first surgery is scheduled for Friday morning.

Easton’s father said the family will no longer cook with the boy in the kitchen. The family said it hopes others can learn from their experience.

Those who want to help the family can donate to their online fundraiser.
