Accident takes 20-year-old's life 3 days before Christmas

On Dec. 22, just three days before Christmas, a man from Taunton was killed in a car accident. Reports indicated that it was a two-car crash.

According to the local police, the man was in a Honda Accord, and he was heading down School Street, going south toward the intersection where it meets up with Purchase Street. This was right around 11:15 at night.

As he got to the intersection, an SUV came down Purchase Street and slammed into his sedan. This impact was hard enough to send the Accord careening out of control, where it crashed into a fence and then smashed up against a telephone pole.

Pictures from the scene show fire trucks in the road and pieces of that broken fence scattered all over. The cars are not visible in all photos, but the extent of the damage and the force of the impact is still clear.

Emergency crews did respond to the scene and took the man, who was still alive at the time, to Rhode Island Hospital. Unfortunately, his injuries were severe enough that he passed away at the medical center. He was just 20 years old when he died.

The other driver was 35 years old, and that woman was also hurt, though her injuries were described as minor. The emergency crews took her to Morton Hospital.

Car accidents around the holidays are always tragic, and this story shows just how quickly they can strike, even at a simple intersection. Those who are injured, and the families of those who are killed, must know all of the legal rights that they have following a crash.
