Red Sox producer, girlfriend dead in car accident
BOSTON (AP) -- A car crashed into another vehicle in a busy Back Bay intersection Saturday night and then rolled over onto a Brookline couple, killing a 28-year-old man who produced video and scoreboard entertainment for the Red Sox at Fenway Park and his girlfriend.
John Lanzillotti and 27-year-old Jessica Campbell died after being hit by the car at the intersection of Beacon and Fairfield streets. Lanzillotti was pronounced dead at the scene and Campbell died at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, police said.
Police said two people in one of the cars were taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Lanzillotti worked for the Red Sox for seven years and was manager of productions and game operations. He was a New England Emmy Award winner who produced features for NESN-TV’s weekly "Red Sox Report" and created many of the vignettes seen between innings at Fenway Park, the Red Sox said.
"His poise under pressure and good-humored manner helped us deliver consistently outstanding results. We are all grief-stricken, and we send our deepest sympathies and condolences to Jack’s and Jessica’s families," Red Sox President/CEO Larry Lucchino said in a statement.
The cause of the accident is under investigation and police are urging witnesses to come forward with information. No arrests have been announced.
