Snowplow Driver with Extensive Criminal History Fatally Strikes Woman


According to court records, Lloyd Card struck and killed 71-year-old Maria Vega-Rivera, as he cleared snow from the Maple Gardens parking lot in North Providence. Vega-Rivera was swiftly taken to R.I. Hospital but later succumbed to her injuries.

Card has a lengthy criminal record including over a dozen motor vehicle citations within the past three years. However, Card was not criminal charged for the incident that resulted in the death of Vega-Rivera.

Instead, he received three more violations including driving with a suspended license (third offense), driving without insurance, and operating an unregistered vehicle.

Once again, the tragic effects of recidivism result in the worst of circumstances. How many chances should someone get before we more closely consider those who aren’t getting a second chance at life?
