Officers’ conduct in Enfield chase that killed letter carrier “was in accord with department policy,” police chief says

LONGMEADOW, Mass. (WWLP) – Massachusetts and Connecticut State Police are continuing to investigate last Thursday’s deadly crash in Longmeadow.

Enfield Police said they will determine whether their officers acted appropriately when they pursued the pick-up truck into Longmeadow.

“It’s terrible when something like that happens,” said Mike Mathews of Enfield. “It was a result of something he had no control over.”

A postal worker and a pick-up truck driver were killed in a head-on collision during the police chase. Enfield Police pursued David Cersosimo on Route 5 after his pickup truck sideswiped a vehicle Thursday morning.

The Hampden County District’s Office said the truck driver drove into Longmeadow where he collided with a US Postal Service truck. Cersosimo and the postal truck driver David Nacin were killed in the crash. Nacin was a 40-year postal service employee.

So sad and prayer go out to the family. Some of these chases that take place in residential areas need to stop.
