Vehicular Homicide Case Against MASS MoCA Director Joe Thompson Still On

A vehicular homicide case against the director of the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, Joe Thompson, will continue, a judge ruled.

Joseph Thompson, 61, was charged in connection with the July 2018 crash that killed motorcyclist Steven Fortier. Fortier and Thompson collided in North Adams while traveling in opposite directions, police said.

Some readers may remember that according to, Thompson may “have tried to leave the scene of a fatal accident last summer.”

Curious why this story hasn’t gotten much attention in the art industry.
