WOONSOCKET â€“ They were all put in a rescue squad and taken to the hospital with broken bones, chipped teeth and facial bruises â€“ three women riding in a car that slammed into a utility pole on Diamond Hill Road.
After a two-month probe, however, police yesterday arrested a second motorist they say deliberately caused the crash, the latest outbreak of violence in an ongoing feud with the other driver.
Stephanie Theresa Plante, 23, of Woonsocket, was charged with assault with a dangerous weapon â€“ a Buick â€“ and leaving the scene of a crash resulting in personal injury, both felonies.
PROVIDENCE â€“ Six months since her shocking win in the high jump at last yearâ€™s outdoor state meet, Kaylnn Pitts was back in her element.
The indoor track & field season began in early December but for the Woonsocket High sophomore on Thursday night it was her first time competing in the vertical leap. Although she has been able to long jump and sprint for the Villa Novans, a tender knee suffered during the fallâ€™s volleyball season has kept Pitts away from the high jump area.
WOONSOCKET --- Offensively, Mount St. Charles Academy is sixth out of the stateâ€™s nine teams in goals scored, and defensively, the Mounties are one of four teams to have surrendered fewer than 10 goals.
But thereâ€™s one huge reason why the Mounties are sitting atop the standings with a 5-0 mark and looking like a potent squad in excellent shape to defend their state championship come March.
â€śI think we have the depth that any team in the league would envy,â€ť offered MSC coach Steve Shea. â€śI feel like we have depth at every position, which is very nice to have.â€ť
