Blackstone Valley

WOONSOCKET, R.I. (WPRI) — Police are investigating a motorcycle accident that left one man dead.

The crash occurred on Transit Street near Vose Street around 9:30 p.m. when the motorcyclist collided with a car.

Police tell Eyewitness News the motorcyclist was transported to Rhode Island Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The motorcyclist was wearing a helmet, according to police.

Jeffrey Carrington saw the crash and immediately ran over to try and help.

“Before I knew it I heard something that sounded like a small bomb exploding and then I saw parts flying,” Carrington recalled.

Carrington helped perform CPR on the victim before first responders arrived.

“I did everything I possibly could to try and help,” Carrington said. “I did what a good Samaritan would do.”

“What ran through my mind was, ‘Please let this kid live, I hope he lives,’ but there was no chance,” he added.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
