SE Mass

ATTLEBORO, Mass. (WPRI) — A Pawtucket man has been charged after a crash Sunday in Attleboro sent him and another man to the hospital.

James Grilli, 37, was charged with negligent operation of a motor vehicle after driving his Toyota on the wrong side of the road and hitting another vehicle, according to Attleboro Police Chief Kyle Heagney.

Dashcam video submitted to Eyewitness News by Amber Bigelow captured the incident which occurred around 7 p.m. Sunday on Newport Avenue.

Bigelow says she always has her dashcam rolling, just in case. She says she watched the video of the crash multiple times trying to process it.

“I wasn’t expecting that I’d catch something like that,” she said. “I was very happy to see many bystanders and witnesses who actually got out of their cars to help.”

(Story continues below video.)

Grilli and the driver of the other vehicle, a 27-year-old Pawtucket man, were both taken to Rhode Island Hospital and have since been released, Heagney said.

Attleboro Fire Deputy Chief Dennis Perkins described the crash as a “high-speed impact.”
