High-speed crash: WMUR-TV reporter finds herself on another side of the story
Published: Dec 18, 2018
As a TV reporter, Siobhan Lopez has covered countless serious car crashes and the impact they’ve had on the victims and their families. On Tuesday, Lopez found herself on the other side of the story as she stood before Kevin Morrissey in court as he was sentenced to a year in jail for crashing his BMW into the back of her car on Interstate 93 in Windham last January. Police said the Nashua man was high on methamphetamine and racing at speeds of 90 to 100 mph. A prosecutor said the 37-year-old Morrissey later told police that he believed he was in a video game speeding and dodging vehicles on the road.
While addressing Morrissey in Rockingham County Superior Court, WMUR-TV reporter Lopez said family members who arrived at the hospital didn’t recognize her because of her injuries, which included broken teeth, a broken nose, concussion, and a strained neck. “My husband finally got there and thought he had walked into the wrong room. My best friend, the man who has loved me since I was 18, didn’t recognize my face. You put us through that, that’s not fair,” she told Morrissey. Lopez underwent emergency dental work two days after the crash and described how Novocaine was injected into her gums “that had just been smashed into a steering wheel.”
She described the pain that she endured and how she was forced to use up all of her sick days during her two weeks off the air at WMUR. She returned to work and relied on makeup to cover the black eye and bruising on her face. “I hope you know how lucky you are that you didn’t kill me or yourself that night,” she said. Morrissey apologized for the physical and emotional pain he caused Lopez. He admitted that he’s an addict and alcoholic and has spent years struggling with mental health issues. “I want to kill this disease,” he said, adding that Lopez was a victim of his addiction.
According to Assistant County Attorney Jonathan Cowal, Morrissey, who served in the U.S. Coast Guard and pursued his dreams of becoming a cruise ship bridge officer, was seen weaving in and out of traffic at a high rate of speed on the night of Jan. 6. Other drivers called the police, who were on the lookout for him before learning that he had crashed into Lopez on her way home from work. Cowal had requested a two- to a four-year prison sentence for Morrissey, who pleaded guilty to aggravated driving while intoxicated, reckless conduct with a deadly weapon, and possession of a controlled drug.
Judge Andrew Schulman felt one year in the county jail was appropriate, along with a loss of license for two years. Other conditions include a substance use disorder evaluation and the installation of an interlock device on his vehicle once he gets his license back. “This is an extreme degree of intoxication and it’s accompanied by a crazy degree of reckless driving,” Schulman said. Morrissey said he’s never used drugs while working on a ship, but things are different when he returns. “When I return to this great state, I fall flat on my face every time,” he said. Morrissey insisted that he would get the help he needs to turn his life around.
