Mass. EMTs Won't Testify Against Trooper

[How convenient] - Earlier this month, state police reopened their investigation, acknowledging that they had never interviewed two Bourne firefighter/EMTs who treated Peirce at the scene of the Route 6 crash.

Those Bourne firefighters declined to be interviewed by police, citing medical privacy laws.

The Times was denied access to a report filed by the EMTs on the crash for the same reason but has appealed the decision to the state Supervisor of Public Records. That appeal is pending.

O'Keefe's office could subpoena that record but won't, he said. "We don't do investigations based on rumor," he said.

The facts that Peirce admitted to consuming alcohol earlier in the day and that two empty beer cans were found in his car were not enough to compel police to administer a Breathalyzer test, O'Keefe said.
