MOST COMMENTED

[JURISPRUDENCE] Zachery Lemmo, 20, was charged with vehicular homicide while intoxicated in the death of 61-year-old James Braga, a former Boston Globe Coach of the Year at Middleborough (Mass.) High School.

Lemmo was arrested Tuesday and held on $50,000 cash bail at his arraignment Wednesday in connection with the car crash that killed Braga Sunday night on Route 44 in Middleborough.

The Boston CBS Local web site reported that prosecutors alluded to evidence Lemmo may have been drag racing with friends moments before the crash and was driving an estimated 70 miles per hour when he ran a red light and struck Braga's car.

Braga taught business at Middleborough High, coached soccer and helped start a local CYO basketball league. He was named the Boston Globe’s Division 2 Coach of the Year award in 2003

“My father loved the town, and the town loves him,” said Jonathan Braga, 29, the youngest of Braga’s three sons, told the Globe. “That’s what’s coming out.”
