Jean Thermora Killed in Boston, MA, Auto Shop Accident

Boston, MA -- February 16, 2017, Jean Thermora was involved in an accident where he was hit by a car at an auto shop, ultimately causing his death.

Authorities were called to the scene in afternoon hours to C & V Automotive located off of Hyde Park Avenue.

According to preliminary investigations, Thermora was at the shop getting his taxi serviced. As he walked through the shop, an employee reportedly backed a car into him, and he suffered critical injuries as a result.

He was rushed to a hospital in critical condition. He underwent treatment for some time until he eventually died on February 28.

Authorities have not indicated any charges or citations at this time. Their investigations are ongoing.

Map of the Area


The reports I've been seeing have shown a much darker picture than just a typical freak accident. C & V Automotive has reportedly failed to acquire a license to operate since 2014, and authorities found several safety violations upon investigating the shop. What this tells me is that there is a pattern of hazardous behavior associated with this shop, and it seems to have finally resulted in a terrible accident.

There needs to be a thorough investigation here to ensure that any and all necessary evidence is properly preserved. After such an egregious disregard for public safety, and since someone suffered the ultimate consequence of these actions, those responsible for this tragedy need to be held accountable. The family of the victim deserves to find justice.
