December 22, 2009 – Donna Souza, 50, of Fall River, Massachusetts, and Jenna Souza, 25, also of Fall River, sustained serious personal injuries in a car accident, which occurred on Route 24 in Fall River last Thursday around 3:00 p.m. Donna Souza was the operator of a 2004 Buick Rendezvous, which rolled over the guardrail just north of the President’s Avenue exit.
According to police, another vehicle may have caused the SUV to travel from the left lane off of the roadway into the center median where it rolled over and came to a stop. The second vehicle is believed to have fled the scene.
Donna Souza was transported by medical helicopter to Rhode Island Hospital in Providence. Jenna Souza was taken by ambulance to Charlton Memorial Hospital. Both women’s injuries were described as serious.
This accident remains under investigation by the Massachusetts State Police.
