A medical helicopter transported a 29-year-old woman with serious injuries to a Rhode Island hospital Tuesday, November 8, after her vehicle crashed head-on into a dump truck on Palmer Avenue in Falmouth. Her condition is still unknown at this time.
The woman was traveling south on Palmer Avenue, and the dump truck was traveling north. The sedan crossed the center line into the path of the dump truck, according to a preliminary investigation by police. The dump truck driver was unhurt, but the sedan driver had to be extricated by mechanical means before being flown to the hospital.
