Griswold – Tanker Crash

A tanker crashed and rolled over in Griswold yesterday.

Emergency teams responded to the intersection of Route 201 (Hopeville Road) and Geer Road following reports of a crash in the area. State Police reported a tanker truck was traveling on Route 201 when it crashed into a utility pole and overturned, spilling its cargo (milk) over a wide area. The driver was shaken and complained of pain but refused to be hospitalized. Various agencies/departments have since arrived on-site to assess the crash and provide necessary support. Officials have yet to provide additional info and are expected to do so in due time.

It’s fortunate that this incident did not result in any environmental issue. That said, establishing liability remains the primary objective of this and other crashes. Negligence is of particular interest to aggrieved parties as the involvement of this factor may allow victims to explore and pursue legal avenues against liable parties.

Griswold – Fatal Motorcycle Crash

A motorcyclist was killed in a crash in Griswold last Tuesday morning.

At around 12:22 a.m., 28-year-old Isaac Watson, a resident of 625 Storrs Street, was riding his motorcycle north on Glasgow Road (Route 201) when his bike suddenly swerved off the roadway and crashed. Watson was thrown off his vehicle, fell on the ground and sustained critical injuries. He was pronounced dead at the crash site. According to officials, they have yet to collect evidence that points to the possible involvement of another vehicle. The crash remains under investigation and authorities are asking possible witnesses or anyone with information to contact them as soon as possible.

While there have been many cases of negligent drivers causing single-vehicle accidents in the past, there have also been cases of product/vehicle defects causing similar incidents. Because of these scenarios, it’s always the goal of crash investigators to sift through all available evidence to ensure that liability is accurately established. This will not only allow culprits to be brought to justice, but also enable accident victims to pursue legal opportunities that will help them find closure.

Griswold – Motorcycle Crash Causing Serious Injuries

A man sustained serious injuries in a crash in Griswold last Monday evening.

At around 7:45 p.m., 38-year-old Javier Dario Santiago was riding his motorcycle westbound on Route 201 crossing Griswold, and close to Hopeville Pond State Park, when his motorcycle swerved to the opposite lane of the road. A Kia Sedona with two occupants was moving eastbound and was hit by the motorcycle. The driver and passenger of the car sustained minor injuries and were immediately transported to Backus Hospital for treatment. On the other hand, Santiago sustained serious injuries after he was thrown off the motorcycle due to the crash. A rescue helicopter was called in and transported Santiago to Rhode Island Hospital.

Motorcycle accidents like this one usually result in serious injuries to riders, and sometimes, other parties or vehicles. Authorities investigating this case will eventually determine if negligence is involved, and aggrieved parties not responsible for the incident can file for compensation claims.
