Recent Crashes in Johnston 

In December 2020, a motor vehicle crashed through a local Johnston business with 80 percent of the vehicle breaking through the window. While there was significant property damage, thankfully nobody was injured, but there is potential for damages in any type of accident like this. Earlier that year, two dump trucks collided on Shun Pike causing one passenger to be sent to the hospital. Atwood Avenue is one of the busiest, and high-traffic, roadways in town and site to a large number of crashes that involve multiple vehicles. Johnston car accidents also frequently involve motorcycles, such as the Route 6 collision during which a motorcyclist was fatally injured when it hit a truck and a minivan, causing the motorcyclist to be propelled into the opposite lane of traffic.

Other types of motor vehicles have also been involved in deadly crashes in town. For example, a dirt bike rider collided with a Jeep in 2019, killing one of the passengers who was trapped beneath the vehicle. Later the same year, a woman was killed after her car collided with another vehicle at the intersection between Plainfield Pike and Peck Hill Road. When a Johnston auto accident turns fatal, grieving family members should seek legal advice to determine their eligibility to be awarded compensation for their losses with a wrongful death lawsuit. An experienced car accident attorney can help family members file a RI wrongful death claim to hold a careless driver accountable for the loss of a loved one. While no amount of money can substitute for a tragic loss, it can ease some of the associated financial burden such as funeral costs, burial expenses, as well as loss of companionship.
