Man in fair condition after serious crash


CHARLESTOWN — A local man seriously injured in an accident Friday was listed in fair condition Monday afternoon at Rhode Island Hospital.

William R. Mongillo, 35, of 20 Gooseberry Hill, was involved in a crash with a Mack dump-truck hauling a large trailer carrying an excavator. First responders were forced to use heavy hydraulic extrication devices to rescue him from his van.

The incident occurred on South County Trail (Route 2) in the early afternoon, forcing closure of a major road through town for several hours, said Charlestown Lt. Patrick J. McMahon. Rescue personnel on the scene described Mongillo’s injuries as “serious and life threatening.”

The driver of the truck, Albert C. Kellers, 44, of 164 Klondike Road, Charlestown, was not injured.

McMahon said Mongillo was transported to South County Hospital in Wakefield by Charlestown Rescue where he was stabilized then transferred to the state’s trauma center at Rhode Island Hospital by that facility’s critical care transport team.

Charlestown Police Chief Jeffrey S. Allen said Monday his department’s accident reconstruction team was on the scene of the crash and continues to investigate. He said no charges have been filed as a result of the accident.
