What happened to George Gyamfi?
On Monday morning, an SUV, Toyota Venza, collided with another vehicle which caused the SUV to veer off the highway toward the woods and killed the driver and the passenger. The driver was later identified as George Gyamfi. The accident happened on Interstate 495 near the South Attleboro border.
The crash occurred around 9 AM, and a state medical examiner was immediately called. Authorities identified both the victims as residents of Pawtucket, who were trapped in the SUV. According to a statement released by Christopher Coleman, the fire chief of North Attleboro, the firefighters were able to rescue the passenger.
According to Mansfield Fire Chief Justin Desrosiers, the passenger was transported in an ambulance to Rhode Island Hospital in Providence. Doctors determined that the injuries were potentially fatal.
The passenger was riding in the right-hand traffic lane in a pickup vehicle pulling a U-Haul trailer. The witnesses report that the SUV was speeding and, thus, hit the back of the trailer, which then, due to impact, veered off the highway into the woods and hit a tree.
Workers from the state transportation department stopped the right travel and breakdown lanes for the police investigation for roughly three hours.
