On Dec. 13 shortly before 10 p.m., Anderson A. Nova, 19, allegedly was speeding in a rented 2022 Buick Enclave SUV in the Brighton neighborhood when he passed a Massachusetts State Police cruiser heading in the opposite direction. The trooper turned around but lost sight of Nova’s vehicle and did not engage in a pursuit.

Not long after, police said, troopers spotted smoke rising from an intersection not far from where Nova was observed speeding and found Nova’s SUV had broadsided the Honda Civic of 53-year-old Dina L. Donahue.

Police said troopers at the scene “observed Nova running away from the scene of the crash while carrying his dog and apprehended him.”

Investigators determined Donahue had a green light when she went through the intersection and was hit by Nova as he allegedly sped through a red light and rammed into her driver’s side door.

Donahue was rushed to Beth Israel Hospital, where she passed away from her injuries.

Nova suffered minor injuries in the crash and was treated at Brigham and Women’s Hospital before officers booked him into the State Police-Boston Barracks on charges of negligent vehicular homicide and other offenses, including speeding, leaving the scene of a crash causing personal injury or death, receiving stolen property, and using a motor vehicle without authority.

According to police, troopers at the crash scene allegedly found stolen checks and credit cards in Nova’s wrecked rental car. Nova, police said, was driving on a suspended license and was not listed on the SUV’s rental agreement.
