Auburn man pleads not guilty to causing accident

Posted: Updated:

WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) - A Massachusetts man charged with being drunk when his vehicle rear-ended a bread delivery truck on Interstate 290, killing the driver, has pleaded not guilty.

The Telegram & Gazette ( ) reports that Keith Leblanc Jr. was allowed to remain free on previously posted bail of $12,500 and with GPS monitoring at his arraignment Tuesday in Worcester Superior Court.

The 26-year-old Leblanc faces charges including manslaughter by motor vehicle and motor vehicle homicide while under the influence of alcohol.

Police say the Auburn man struck the truck at about 4:30 a.m. Nov. 11, killing the driver, 45-year-old Duane Race of Putnam, Conn.

The vehicle that struck the truck never stopped. Police followed a trail of leaking automotive fluids to Leblanc's home. His lawyer has questioned the legality of the field sobriety test.
