NORTHAMPTON, Mass. (WWLP) – The driver accused of striking and killing a man with his truck at an Amherst bus stop in November was in court Friday afternoon.
Twenty-year-old Peter Sheremeta was arraigned at Hampshire Superior Court in Northampton in connection to the hit-and-run crash.
Amherst Police say Sheremeta was driving a pickup truck at a high speed when he allegedly hit Northampton resident William Wancyzk, who was standing at a North Pleasant Street bus shelter on November 6, 2016.
Wancyzk died shortly after he was taken to the hospital.
Sheremeta pleaded not guilty to manslaughter, motor vehicle homicide and operating under the influence charges at Eastern Hampshire District Court May 10th. He was then indicted on those charges by a Hampshire Superior Court grand jury on June 6th.
Following Friday’s superior court arraignment, Sheremeta remains held at Hampshire County jail on $100,000 cash bail.
