NORTH KINGSTOWN, RI – A woman was seriously injured yesterday when her vehicle veered off Route 138 south of Kingstown and slammed into a tree, WJAR reports.
The woman was westbound when she apparently lost control in a curve, causing the vehicle to leave the roadway and collide with a tree.
The car sustained extensive damage, which slowed the rescue process. It took North Kingstown firefighters several attempts before they were able to extricate the vehicle’s driver and sole occupant from the wreck using the jaws of life.
Emergency responders rushed her to an area hospital with serious, potentially life-threatening injuries.
State and local police continue to investigate the incident.
