A 19-year-old man has been indicted over the horror boat crash in Cape Cod that killed 17-year-old lacrosse star Sadie Mauro.
David Sullivan faces multiple charges relating to the death of the Dover-Sherborn Regional High School senior in the boating accident on July 21.
Mauro was among six people on board a boat that smashed into the jetty at the entrance of Sesuit Harbor at around 9pm that night.
She was thrown into the water and her body was only recovered at 11:20pm off Cold Storage Beach after a multi-agency search. Two others were seriously injured.
Sullivan faces charges of death of a person caused by operating a vessel or boat under the influence of intoxicating liquor, reckless or negligent operation of a vessel causing death, being a minor in possession of alcohol, possession of false RMV documents, and two counts of operation of a vessel while under the influence of intoxicating liquor causing serious bodily injury, the Boston Globe reports.

The outlet said a statement from the Cape and Islands District Attorney Robert J. Galibois’s office confirmed the indictment, but did not mention Mauro by name.
It also stated that two other people sustained ‘serious bodily harm’ during the accident.
The statement added: ‘The District Attorney would like to express his deepest condolences to the deceased 17-year old’s family and loved ones.’
Sullivan is due to be arraigned in Barnstable Superior Court on October 10.
Mauro was an aspiring lacrosse player with dreams of playing in college. She excelled as a midfielder and competed in the State Championships earlier this year.
Prior to her tragic death she wrote of her ambitions to keep playing on her recruitment page which said: ‘I can’t wait to continue my athletic and academic career collegiately!’
Her body was recovered from the devastating smash more than three hours after the impact following a joint effort between rescuers from the US Coast Guard, state and local police agencies, a regional dive team and local fire fighters.
