Dundee Man Admits to Causing MVA That Killed 16-Year-Old


A local man could get time in prison after admitting to charges related to an accident last summer on Route 14A that killed a Dundee teen.

Dakota O’Shaughnessy pleaded guilty to a felony charge of vehicular manslaughter along with a misdemeanor count of driving while ability impaired by drugs. At around 7 o’clock on the morning of July 3rd, the 21-year-old Dundee man admitted he was impaired by drugs as he drove on Route 14A in Barrington and went off the road. The car rolled over multiple times, struck a culvert, and then some trees before it came to rest on its roof. 16-year-old Ty Gregory was pronounced dead at the scene.

O’Shaughnessy will get no more than one to three years in prison at his sentencing in February. His sentence could also include lessers, which would include county jail instead of prison.
