DA: Worker, 28, killed in accident at Malden car wash
No charges have been filed in a bizarre accident in Malden yesterday in which authorities say a vehicle pulling out of a bay at a car wash struck and killed an employee working on another vehicle outside.
The Sonny's Car Wash worker, identified as Jose Tobias-Valle, 28, of Malden by Middlesex District Attorney Marian T. Ryan's office, was pronounced dead at Melrose-Wakefield Hospital.
The driver of the vehicle that fatally struck Tobias-Valle at 9 a.m. on Eastern Avenue has not been identified.
Ryan spokeswoman Jacquelyn Goddard said in a statement the investigation is still active and, "as of now, no one has been charged in connection with this incident."
