Bradford Man Arraigned Today for Fatal Accident on Route 125

Bradford resident Robert Bryant was arraigned today in Lawrence District Court after being charged with vehicular homicide in connection with a fatal pedestrian accident yesterday afternoon.
State Police allege that Bryant was driving drunk when he struck a woman, who police are now identifying as Cynthia Anne Ray, 30, of Bradford. Yesterday afternoon, Ray had visited the State Police barracks on Route 125 in Andover for an accident report for a family member and was allegedly struck by Bryant on her way back to her car. She was transported to a hospital and later died of her injuries.
Following Bryant's arraignment today at Lawrence District Court, a $50,000 bail was not posted for Bryant by the end of the day. He will be transported to the Middleton Correctional Facility on Manning Avenue in Middleton.
If Bryant is bailed out, the court required him to wear an electronic monitoring bracelet.
Judge Mark Sullivan scheduled Bryant to appear before court again on Jan. 4 for a status review, which gives the judge the chance to make changes to conditions of Bryant's bail or other factors before the courts go further with the case.
