Hanson driver, 21, is charged in teenager’s death


A 21-year-old Hanson woman is being charged with motor vehicle homicide after allegedly striking and killing a teenager with her vehicle early Tuesday while driving under the influence of narcotics, the office of Plymouth District Attorney Timothy J. Cruz said. Sara Sansone was driving south on Main Street in Hanson at 12:20 a.m when she veered into the shoulder, where Aron Langlais, 18, was walking, Cruz’s office said in a statement. Sansone allegedly struck Langlais before hitting a tree, the district attorney’s office said. Langlais was first taken to Brockton Hospital before being taken to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead, Cruz’s office said.
