Irene Gaulin, 72, dies and her husband Louis Gaulin hospitalized after their car is struck by another that fled the scene, then collides head-on with pickup truck on Harris Avenue at Gaskill Street in Woonsocket, Rhode Island
Woonsocket Deputy Police Chief Michael Lemoine said the initial investigation indicates that the couple’s car veered into the opposite lane and crashed with a truck head on.
They were both rushed to Rhode Island Hospital with serious injuries. At last check, Louis is in stable condition at the hospital. The driver of the truck was not seriously injured.
Over the weekend, the investigation revealed that a third car heading northbound on Harris Avenue in front of the pickup truck apparently turned left and made contact with the Gaulins’ vehicle, causing them to veer into the oncoming lane and hit the truck, police said.
