EAST PROVIDENCE — One man died and another remains in serious condition as a result of a two-car collision Friday evening, Aug. 18, in city on Pawtucket Avenue near both Catlin Avenue and Bowen Street.
East Providence Police responded to reports of a serious motor vehicle crash on Pawtucket Avenue just before 8 p.m. Upon arrival, responding officers identified two cars involved, a Subaru in the roadway and a Nissan in the front lawn of a residence on Pawtucket Avenue east of Bowen Street.
Officers found three persons involved in the crash on scene: the two operators of the vehicles and one passenger, who were all transported to Rhode Island Hospital for treatment.
Brothers were seated in the Nissan. The passenger was identified as 24-year-old Jacob Crenshaw, from Pawtucket. He was later pronounced dead at the hospital.
The driver of the Nissan, Andrew Crenshaw, 27 and also from Pawtucket, sustained serious injuries. He was last listed in critical condition, unconscious in the Intensive Care Unit at RIH.
A 22-year-old male from Providence was the operator of the Subaru and was listed in stable condition at last check.
The EPPD Traffic and Crash Reconstruction Unit, along with detectives, are investigating the crash. The preliminary investigation and witness reports indicate speed was a factor in the crash. There are no charges as of this time.
The debris field reached well into the adjacent streets. Pieces of the vehicles were found in the yard of at least one residence into Bowen Street, some 100 feet away from the main scene.
As of Monday morning, Aug. 21, Captain Michael J. Rapoza, the EPPD's Services Division Commander/Public Information Officer, said there was nothing further to report on the incident. Andrew Crenshaw was still in ICU and not conscious so investigators have not been able to speak with him yet.
