On Saturday, a Plainville, Mass., man police suspect of driving under the influence of heroin struck an oncoming car on Cumberland Street about 6:40 p.m.
Duane A. Gero, 33, was charged with duty to stop resulting in damage to an attended vehicle, driving under the influence of liquor or intoxicating substance, laned roadway violations, operating left of center and failure to wear a seatbelt.
