LEBANON, N.H. — A former Fortune 500 executive who lives in New Hampshire is set to be arraigned on charges that he caused a crash that killed a Vermont couple.
Fifty-three-year-old Robert Dellinger served as senior vice president of finance at PPG Industries Inc. and has held top level posts at Sprint Nextel Corp. and Delphi Corp.
The attorney general’s office says Dellinger, of Sunapee, recklessly killed 29-year-old Jason Timmons and 24-year-old Amanda Murphy, who was eight months pregnant. They say his vehicle crossed over the median Saturday on Interstate 89 in Lebanon and crashed head-on into the couple’s SUV. The couple was from Wilder, Vt.
Dellinger, who suffered minor injuries, was scheduled to be arraigned today in Lebanon on two counts of manslaughter.
His lawyers did not immediately return calls seeking comment.
