1 sent to hospital after 3-car accident in Charlestown


CHARLESTOWN — A three-car accident Wednesday evening at the intersection of Narrow Lane and South Country Trail resulted in minor injuries and a fire inside one of the vehicles.

The Charlestown Police Department, along with Charlestown EMS and Fire, responded to a call shortly before 7 p.m. Wednesday reporting an accident involving three separate vehicles, according to Police Chief Jeffrey Allen.

One driver was transported by Charlestown Ambulance to The Westerly Hospital for evaluation, while the other two drivers were evaluated at the scene and transported home by family or friends, according to the police report.

The accident was caused when the first driver, in a Ford Taurus, veered into oncoming traffic while traveling north on South County Trail, striking a Mazda head-on which in turn hit the third vehicle.

“Excessive speed is believed to be a factor,” Allen said of the first vehicle’s loss of control.

The Taurus was described as “fully involved” and on fire when officers arrived, though the flames were quickly extinguished. Heavy damage marked all three of the cars.

The drivers of the Taurus and Mazda were both cited, and all vehicles were towed from the scene by Bradford Motors.
