    A man has been charged in connection with a 2014 Vermont highway crash that killed one retired Massachusetts police chief riding a motorcycle and critically injured another.

    Vermont state police say Frank Sargent was charged Friday with gross negligent operation with serious bodily injury or death. They say a car driven by Sargent crossed the center line of Route 14 in Woodbury on June 29, 2014, and collided with the motorcyclists.

    Killed was Joseph Rebello, a former police chief in Kingston, Massachusetts. Injured was Richard Braga, a former police chief from Hudson, Massachusetts. Two other motorcyclists avoided being struck.

    Police say Sargent's car sustained extensive front-end damage.

    Sargent says he has no comment on the crash or the charge against him and will appear in court Jan. 19 as scheduled.
