June 13, 2013

PAWTUCKET – The worst-case scenario that Xander Bogaerts envisioned never came to pass.
Initially, Bogaerts thought he was being summoned to the manager’s office because he didn’t protest a strike three call that came with the count full.

LINCOLN – A senior from the high school was reported hurt Thursday afternoon when the car he was driving struck a utility pole and rolled over onto its roof.
Police Chief Brian Sullivan said Devin Lambert, 18, of Main Street in Albion, had been heading south on Anna Sayles Road after leaving the school and struck the pole near the small rotary at Great Road.
The student was wearing a seatbelt and that may have prevented further injury in the incident, the chief said.
