Massachusetts authorities say 43-year-old Timothy Baltzer of Wilmington, Vt., is scheduled to be arraigned next week.

The Recorder of Greenfield ( http://bit.ly/MBqvcb ) reports that 18-year-old Nicholas Boyd, of Whitingham, Vt., died. A 33-year-old passenger was injured.
Police say the men were looking for a place to go off-roading and Boyd was supposed to be driving because he was sober.
Baltzer’s lawyer had no comment.
The Franklin County town of Rowe is located .
