Police responded to a call shortly before 5 p.m. on Winnapaug Road near its intersection with Lancaster Road, according to Chief Ed St. Clair. According to a police report, Acevedo is believed to have strayed over the center line of the road, hitting an oncoming vehicle driven by a 78-year-old Westerly woman. The Westerly woman sustained injuries to her arm and face which St. Clair described as “non-life threatening,” as well as damage to her car.

The woman was transported to Westerly Hospital by ambulance, where she was treated for her injuries and released.
