Update: Driver crashes into stone border marker
WRENTHAM – A 42 year old Stoughton, Mass. man was injured this monring when he crashed into the stone and concrete structure that marks the border between Rhode Island and Massachusetts.
Jose T. Sousa, of 50 Birch Street, was heading north on Wrentham Road, or Route 121, when he lost control of his red coupe.
The car flipped. Sousa, unconscious, was found inside the car.
Earlier reports that Sousa had been ejected from the car were incorrect, according to Jay McMorrow, Wrentham fire department deputy chief.
North Cumberland Fire Department took Sousa to Rhode Island Hospital shortly after 7 this morning.
The marker, which lies on a sweeping uphill curve, was destroyed by the impact and was cleared by Mass. Department of Transportation, McMorrow said.
Sousa complained of head, back, and neck pain, McMorrow said. He was in the hospital's emergency room at 1:45 p.m. today.
