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.
“He suffered minor injuries and was transported to Rhode Island Hospital for observation,” Sullivan said. The accident required firefighters to break a window on the 2002 Mitsubishi sedan to extricate Lambert from the vehicle. Cumberland Rescue personnel also responded to the location and transported Lambert to the hospital, Sullivan said. The high school is set to graduate its Class of 2013 Friday evening and has its seniors participating in senior week activities and graduation practices. “He was wearing a seatbelt so that was absolutely a good thing,” Sullivan said. The accident was being investigated by Patrolman Kevin Marcoux, according to Sullivan.
