Barrington woman dies in 2-car crash in Seekonk
SEEKONK, Mass. -- A Barrington woman died following a two-car crash yesterday along Route 6. Four others were hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries as a result of the accident.
Police said they were notified at 3:54 p.m. Sunday that Margaret Reade, 57, of 4 Francis St., Barrington, had died at Rhode Island Hospital after being extricated from the passenger seat using a "jaws of life."
The accident occurred around 2:30 p.m. when a black Infinity driven by her husband, Howard Reade, 56, tried to take a left turn into the parking lot of the Seekonk Driving Range at 1960 Fall River Ave. (also called Route 6).
The passenger side was then struck by a Ford Explorer driven by Amanda Rodrigues, 26, of 102 Worcester Ave., East Providence, who was driving in the right eastbound lane of Route 6.
The impact sent the Explorer, which suffered extensive front-end damage, about 100 feet into the driving range parking lot.
Also injured and taken to Rhode Island Hospital were the back-seat passengers in the Reade car, Kevin Reade, 27 and Bethany Seibet, 23, both of New York City.
Rescue workers from Swansea and Providence helped at the scene. State police are still reconstructing the accident.
