    Delivery driver cited for crash with Brown

    Police say he was trying to turn left

    The Dedham Police Department released a report Saturday indicating that the other driver was cited for a Friday night two-vehicle accident, which involved an SUV in which US Senator Scott Brown and his wife, Gail Huff, were passengers.

    The driver, whose name was withheld, was cited for failing to yield when making a left turn, said Dedham police Sergeant Richard Keane. The driver was delivering pizzas for Dedham House of Pizza.

    An aide from Brown’s Senate office was at the wheel of the other vehicle, with the senator and his wife riding as passengers.


    Initially, police said no one was cited in the accident.

    The police report indicates that Brown’s aide, Christopher P. Burgoyne, was traveling north on Sprague Street when the other driver attempted to turn left from a side street - Alden Street - onto Sprague without slowing down, according to witness accounts.

    The impact caused the SUV to strike a utility pole, the police report said.

    No one was injured, but an NStar pole sustained damage in the crash, according to the report.

    At Dedham House of Pizza Saturday, a man who identified himself as an owner but gave his name only as George called the accident unfortunate but said he was glad no one was hurt.


    “That’s that, and we’ll just let the insurance process take its [course],’’ he said by phone. “We’re just happy that Senator Brown’s safe and our driver’s safe as well.’’
