Two recent graduates from Walpole High School and a Medfield woman are being remembered after a deadly crash on East Street over the holiday weekend.
Nicholas Kelly, 20, and classmate Anna Dubois, also 20, were killed in the crash early Saturday morning. Amanda Murray, 23, of Medfield was also killed.
Police say speed and alcohol played a role in the crash.
The driver, Jason Spurlin, 31, a Florida resident, has been charged with three counts of motor vehicle homicide while driving under the influence of alcohol; three counts of motor vehicle homicide by negligent driving; driving under the influence of alcohol, second offense; negligent driving; and driving without a valid license, according to the Daily News Transcript.
Spurlin pleaded not guilty Monday afternoon from his hospital room at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, where he is still being treated for injuries.
According to the paper, Spurlin's 1998 Jeep Cherokee veered off East Street and flipped over after slamming into a tree shortly after 1 a.m. Saturday. The crash occurred near the intersection of High Plain Street and East Street.
None of the occupants was wearing a seat belt, police said.
Spurlin is being held on $75,000 cash bail.
