Missouri man charged in deadly drunken driving crash

Friday, Mar. 6th 2020

HILLSBORO, Mo. (AP) — Court documents say an eastern Missouri man with multiple drunk driving convictions had a blood alcohol content that was nearly three times the legal limit when he caused a deadly crash.

Thirty-three-year-old Richard Nicely, of Cedar Hill, is charged with second-degree murder and driving while intoxicated in the November crash that killed 88-year-old Paul Scaglione and injured Scaglione’s 87-year-old wife, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. No attorney is listed for him in online court records.

He also was charged last month with fleeing the scene of a Jefferson County crash that happened just minutes before he crossed into incoming traffic and collided with Scaglione’s car.

Charges said that after the crashes, Nicely had a blood alcohol content of 0.23%, far exceeding the legal limit is .08%.

Nicely was on probation at the time for a 2019 felony DWI conviction, having been released from prison in July after serving 120 days. Court records show Nicely also has DWI and excessive blood-alcohol convictions in Jefferson County from 2017, 2013, 2007 and 2005.

When it comes to a lawsuit after an accident or injury, representation matters! Most people do not realize that insurance companies have teams of lawyers, investigators, photographers and defense experts who immediately go to work following a serious accident involving their insureds.  They hire these people to minimize their exposure throughout the claims process and to reduce the amount received by the victim. Northland Injury Law aims to level the playing field for their clients.
