Dorchester mother remains in critical condition

Denetric Greathouse could not drive through Dorchester on Thanksgiving without stopping on Olney Street to say a prayer. So she took a detour on her way to her mother’s house to pause in front of the sidewalk memorial for 7-year-old Brianna Rosales, who was killed Tuesday when she and her mother were hit by an allegedly drunken driver while walking home from school.

“I’m gonna go home to my family, and this lady will not be able to bring her daughter home,” Greathouse said. “I will not be able to pass by this street and not pay my condolences, and pour my heart out at this rest stop right here. This is her last resting place.”
