September 21, 2010 – Fritz Daleus, 36, from Milford, Massachusetts has died as a result of serious personal injuries sustained after being thrown from a vehicle during a two car accident. James Manning, 37, from Woonsocket, Rhode Island had Daleus as a passenger in his Ford SUV. Jennifer Graves, 40, from Worcester, Massachusetts was driving the other vehicle, a Nissan SUV. Apparently, Manning ran a red light at Mineral Spring Avenue before colliding with Graves’ truck on Power Road in Pawtucket at around midnight on Saturday.
Daleus was transported to Rhode Island Hospital, where he later passed away. Manning was taken to Memorial Hospital and treated for his injuries. Graves was not injured in the accident.
Manning has been charged with driving on a suspended license and failing to stop at a red light. According to the Rhode Island Division of Motor Vehicle Operator Control, Manning never had a driver’s license in Rhode Island, but had 18 outstanding traffic tickets, including several for reckless driving and operating without a license.
Apparently, Manning was released from an Adult Correctional Institution on June 22, 2010 and is on probation for drug related crimes. Allegedly, Manning has been in and out of ACIs for the last 17 years.
Pawtucket Police are investigating the accident and are unsure if speed and alcohol were causes.
